Caitlyn Jenner Pays $800,000 in Car Crash Settlement


Caitlyn Jenner will pay $800,000 to the members of the family involved in her 2015 car accident.

About the Fatal California Crash

Jenner, aged 68, is to pay $100,00 to Peter Wolf-Millesi and his wife Lea Wolf-Millesi, as they sued Jenner for the injuries they allegedly sustained after a Lexus struck their vehicle, according to People.

They blamed Jenner for serious bodily harm and mental pain and suffering. Lea’s mother, Elga Maurer, is to receive $500,000, according to the same documents. The couple’s 2 children are also said to receive a total of $100,000. The former Olympian will cover attorney’s fees, another $250,000.

Authorities determined that 70-year-old Howe died in the multi-vehicle crash after her car was pushed into oncoming traffic on the Pacific Coast Highway. Jenner rear-ended her and she swerved into oncoming traffic, where she collided with the Wolf-Millesis’ car.
