LOS ANGELES — The stepchildren of a woman killed in an automobile crash involving Bruce Jenner sued the Olympic gold medalist on Friday for wrongful death, claiming they have suffered enormous damages.

The six-page lawsuit does not provide any new details about the February crash, which authorities said occurred when Jenner’s sport utility vehicle collided with the woman’s car, pushing it into oncoming traffic. Kim Howe, 69, died at the scene.

The lawsuit by Dana Redmond and William Howe does not specify how much they are seeking, but states they have sustained enormous damages. They claim Jenner was negligent when he collided with heir stepmother’s car, causing them and other relatives “great losses.”

Jenner’s publicist Alan Nierob declined comment.

Jenner, 65, has not been charged in the case. An investigation is ongoing.

Jenner won the gold medal in the 1976 Olympic decathlon and is known to a younger generation for his role in the reality TV series “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”

Jenner said in a TV interview with Diane Sawyer that he identifies as a woman and has felt gender confusion since he was a boy.

The lawsuit was first reported Friday by celebrity website TMZ.
