Caitlyn Jenner has had another lawsuit slapped against her in connection to a fatal car crash she was involved in last February.

The 65-year-old Olympic gold medallist caused a lethal four-car collision on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu after striking another vehicle in transit last February.

In May she was sued for wrongful death by the family of 69-year-old Kim Howe, the woman who died in the accident.

And according to Radar Online the star, who was known as Bruce Jenner at the time of the collision, is being sued for a second time by Jessica Steindorff, a survivor of the wreck.

Steindorff claimed in legal documents obtained by the website her Prius was rear-ended by the reality star’s Escalade.

“[Jenner] negligently, carelessly, recklessly, and wantonly drove, managed, maintained, controlled, operated and entrusted their motor vehicle so as to legally cause the plaintiff to be injured,” Steindorff’s legal papers read.

Apparently she claimed Caitlyn’s alleged negligence caused significant “damages” to her vehicle. Steindorff is also said to be asking for $25,000 in compensation from Jenner citing lost wages, loss of property and medical expenses as the primary reasons she has brought about the lawsuit.

A video that emerged shortly after the incident appeared to show Jenner at fault – not looking when she hit Mrs Howe’s Lexus, which caused her car to swerve into oncoming traffic.

No formal charges have been brought against Jenner for the incident, but the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star may have to shell out a lot of money on lawsuits, as her insurance only covers $250,000 in accident related expenses.
