Former Olympian Caitlyn Jenner faces a second lawsuit in connection with a car crash in Southern California in which one person died.

Jenner, who celebrated her transition on the cover of Vanity Fair last week, was accused by the court filing by Hollywood talent manager Jessica Marie Steindorff of driving “negligently, carelessly, recklessly and wantonly” and causing the crash, according to CNN.

The personal injury lawsuit was filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court.

A previous lawsuit was filed by the family of Kimberly Howe, who was killed on 7 February in the crash on the Pacific Coast Highway.

Several people were injured in the crash, and Howe died.

Jenner was unharmed in the incident.

The star commented on the crash, saying in a statement: “My heartfelt and deepest sympathies go out to the family and loved ones, and to all of those who were involved or injured in this terrible accident.

“It is a devastating tragedy, and I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time. I am praying for them. I will continue to cooperate in every way possible.”
