Fresh surveillance images that captured the fatal car crash Caitlyn Jenner was involved in last February has been released by the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA).

The 65-year-old Olympic gold medallist is accused of causing a fatal four-car collision on the Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu after striking another vehicle in transit last February.

ET Online has obtained surveillance captured by the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA), footage that was published by the outlet on Thursday July 9.

“The images appear to show Jenner's Cadillac Escalade, which was towing a trailer carrying an off-road vehicle, hitting both a white Lexus, driven by Kim Howe, and Jessica Steindorff's black Prius,” the outlet writes. “It also appears to show Howe colliding with a black Hummer driven by Peter Wolf Millesi.”

Kim Howe was the woman who died in the crash, passing away from the incident at the age of 69.

The still images recorded by the MTA were handed over to authorities shortly after the accident took place to help them determine who is at fault for the tragedy.

A source tells ET Online the MTA footage was shot from two distinct angles by security cameras on a public bus that was passing through the area where the wreck took place.

In May Jenner was sued for wrongful death by the family of the late Kim Howe.

Radar Online reported last month that Jenner, 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.

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.
