The deceased victim's stepchildren are now pursuing civil claims against the Olympian. The lawsuit alleges that Jenner was speeding at the time of the accident. The lawsuit claims that Jenner's negligence, carelessness and recklessness caused the 69-year-old woman's death.

He further stated that their negligence and wrongful death lawsuit was the only way they had of seeking justice.

The deceased driver then struck the Prius from behind with her Lexus sedan.
