The civil lawsuit against Caitlyn Jenner has been dismissed by the stepchildren of the woman killed in a car crash Jenner caused.

Jenner’s attorney, Philip Boesch Jr., confirmed Thursday that the wrongful death suit was dismissed. The dismissal was requested Tuesday, but no additional details were available from court documents.

When Jenner’s sport utility vehicle rear-ended two cars on Pacific Coast Highway in February, it pushed 69-year-old Kim Howe’s Lexus into oncoming traffic. The Lexus was struck by a Hummer, and Howe was killed. 

In May, her stepchildren, Dana Redmond and William Howe, filed a wrongful death suit against Jenner.

According to Sheriff’s investigators, Jenner was traveling at an unsafe speed at the time of the accident. However, prosecutors declined to file a vehicular manslaughter charge because of the unlikelihood of proving negligence in court.

The driver of the other car Jenner rear-ended also filed a suit against Jenner, which has been settled.
