Caitlyn Jenner has a tough week ahead of her.
A representative for the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department announced Thursday that in one week, detectives will be submitting a case to the district attorney regarding the Feb. 7 crash Jenner was involved in. One woman died as a result of the multi-car accident.
Variety reported that LAPD Lt. Shaun Mathers said there was a "50/50" chance the I Am Cait star could be charged with misdemeanor manslaughter.
On the day of the accident, Jenner — then still identifying as Bruce — rear-ended a Lexus sedan while driving on the Pacific Coast Highway, which pushed it into the path of a Hummer coming from the opposite direction. The driver of the Lexus was pronounced dead at the scene. Her family filed a wrongful death suit against Jenner in May.
Jenner released a statement after the accident, saying, "It is a devastating tragedy. I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time. I am praying for them." The former Olympic gold medalist passed a field sobriety test at the time of the accident, and Jenner's publicist said then that "the evidence will show that Bruce was not texting at the time of the accident." The police found Jenner was not driving above the speed limit that day.
In the Thursday announcement, the detectives said they had concluded their six-month investigation into what happened that day.
Since Jenner was not intoxicated or committing a felony at the time of the accident, the charge would be misdemeanor manslaughter, also known as involuntary manslaughter. The charge typically carries a one-year county jail sentence.
