The stepchildren of a woman killed in a car crash caused by Caitlyn Jenner have dismissed their civil lawsuit against the transgender Olympic gold medallist.

Jenner's lawyer, Philip Boesch, said Thursday that the wrongful death suit had been dismissed. No additional details were available from court records.

Jenner's vehicle crashed on the Pacific Coast Highway in February 2015, pushing Kim Howe's car in to oncoming traffic, where it was hit by a Hummer.

Sheriff's investigators determined Jenner, who was born Bruce Jenner, was travelling at an unsafe speed for the conditions at the time. Prosecutors declined to file a vehicular manslaughter case against her.

Howe's stepchildren, Dana Redmond and William Howe, sued Jenner in May.
