6 Celebrities You Didn’t Know Killed Someone by Accident
Kylie Jenner and scandals have become synonymous with each other. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has been linked to racism, pedophilia (on her boyfriend’s end), plastic surgery — all before she turned 18! Then, of course, there’s her older sister, Kim Kardashian, who attached herself to a scandal of her own earlier this week with one (nude) tweet. But out of the entire Kardashian-Jenner clan, none of them can top Caitlyn Jenner‘s biggest scandal.
Last year, a pre-op Caitlyn Jenner got in a car accident, resulting in the death of a 69-year-old woman. While the incident is not what many associate with the 66-year-old Olympian, it’s still something she has to live with. And the same goes for all these celebrities who unintentionally killed someone:
In February 2015, the head of the Jenner family slammed into the back of a car when she was driving along a highway in Malibu, starting a chain reaction, which resulted in the death of a nearly-70-year-old woman named Kim Howe.
Post-accident, Caitlyn issued a statement, saying, "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."
The victim's family claimed that Caitlyn was "careless, negligent and reckless" and mentioned a lawsuit, but eventually filed to dismiss, and a settlement was reached.
