Bruce Jenner could be facing manslaughter charge

Bruce JennerBruce Jenner may be looking at a manslaughter charge in the fatal car accident on February 7 that left 69-year-old Kim Howe dead and seven others injured.

A reconstructed video simulation by Integral Media Works shows Bruce’s Escalade rear-ending Kim’s Lexus, causing it to spin off into the opposite lane – never touching the Prius in front of it – and Bruce rear-ending the Prius immediately after. When Kim’s Lexus spun off, it was struck by an oncoming Hummer, killing her instantly.

Reports say police have also acquired crucial video footage of the crash. An MTA bus travelling behind the Hummer is believed to have captured the incident on its mounted dash cams.

Earlier reports claimed the Lexus hit the Prius, causing it to come to a stop, which led to Bruce hitting the Lexus, sending it spinning into the opposite lane.

    Prison for this guy would be useless…a huge fine and being banned from any more TV appearances would be a better solution.
    And pershaps a good long stint of community service as well, plus all associated court and policing costs.

    Nothing will bring the victim back to life, so why should American taxpayers be stuck with Jenner’s prison stay, and potentially, cost of his gender reassignment surgery.

    he obviously wasn’t planning to kill someone when he set out in his SUV that day, and does not have a criminal mind.

    Time to get real about people and the criminal justice system.
    But then, lawyers, prison guards, judges and police wouldn’t be as well paid if a commo sense approach was used to dicipline those who are just negligent.

    IS he only being charged because he’s Bruce Jenner? Unless he was intoxicated, on his phone..anything that made it.. intentional or not an accident…. but there are thousands of rear enders each year…day… this, unfortunately, had a horrible outcome, but really? I’m not sure he should be charged…..

    Unfortunately, when we do stupid things that lead to someone else’s death, even if we didn’t mean to cause someone harm, it’s called manslaughter. The way it stands now, it looks like he caused that woman’s death. We can’t go around driving like idiots or not paying attention – a car is potentially a murder weapon when used negligently.

    touché Andrew…and in response to Mack, yes, there are thousands of fender benders every day, and in my opinion they should never happen! They only happen by stupid people who can’t drive and should never be on the road in the first place. He was either driving too fast, distracted or putting on make up.

    He is not going to any prison. The only reason this is coming up is because they want a celebrity. Any lawyer can deal with this, right or wrong that will never happen.

    mack, if someone dies in a rear ending, someone goes to jail unless they are dead. It’s fundamental, you make a mistake, even an innocent mistake and you have to answer for it in some way. Jenner’s actions are apparently responsible for someone’s death.

    I doubt all reports. I do agree with King…
