Bruce Jenner is being sued by the relatives of a woman who died in a multi-vehicle car crash involving the Olympic champion.

Los Angeles court spokeswoman Kathy Roberts said a suit had been brought against Jenner by two stepchildren of Kim Howe, who was killed during a four-car collision on the Pacific Coast Highway. The accident is being investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

The stepchildren Dana Redmond and William Howe "are suing for wrongful death", according to the 16-page lawsuit. Five other people were injured in the crash but Jenner was unhurt. It is not known how much the stepchildren are seeking in damages.

Jenner's publicist, Alan Nierob, told Reuters: "At this point we have no knowledge of this, and have no comment."

Jenner, a reality TV star known for his role on the show Keeping up with the Kardashians, recently spoke of his gender identity during a televised interview with ABC, where he said he now identifies as a woman. However, his publicist has said he prefers to be referred to using male pronouns.
