ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Olympic champion and reality television star Bruce Jenner has been sued for wrongful death by relatives of the woman killed in a car crash involving the former athlete on a Malibu highway in February, according to a lawsuit filed on Friday (May 01). The 16-page lawsuit was brought by two stepchildren of Kim Howe, who died in the Feb. 7 four-car collision on the Pacific Coast Highway that sheriff's deputies said at the time left five other people injured. Kenner, an occupant and the presumed driver of one of the vehicles, declined medical treatment at the scene, authorities have said. Jenner's publicist, Alan Nierob, said of the lawsuit, "At this point we have no knowledge of this, and have no comment." The suit came one week after Jenner declared in a nationally televised interview that he identifies as a woman, becoming the most high-profile American to come out as transgender. A publicist, however, has said Jenner still prefers to be referred to with male pronouns.
