LOS ANGELES (AP) — Prosecutors have declined to charge Caitlyn Jenner in fatal car crash in California.

The decision was announced Wednesday in the Feb. 7 collision in which authorities said Jenner’s sport utility vehicle crashed into two cars, pushing one into oncoming traffic. Prosecutors say they didn’t have enough evidence for a conviction.

The crash killed 69-year-old Kim Howe when her Lexus was hit by a Hummer.

Sheriff’s investigators previously determined the 65-year-old Jenner was traveling at an unsafe speed for road conditions and there was enough evidence to support a vehicular manslaughter charge.

The case was then referred to the district attorney’s major crimes division.

Jenner’s attorney Blair Berk said she would later release a statement.
