The Los Angeles County District Attorney has decided that Caitlyn Jenner will not be charged with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter or any crime in connection with a car crash last February that left one woman dead, reports TMZ. 

 The district attorney's office made the decision after receiving a report from the LA County Sheriff's Department in mid-August and found that the 65-year-old's conduct was not "unreasonable" based on all the facts presented in the report. 

Investigators had determined that Jenner was not speeding, but she was still traveling at an unsafe speed for road conditions when her Cadillac Escalade rear-ended two cars, pushing Kim Howe’s car into oncoming traffic, causing the fatal crash.

Before they made the decision public, sources told TMZ that, after reading the 161-page report, it seemed unlikely that Jenner would face any criminal charges.

Jenner's lawyer, Blair Berk, told TMZ they are "heartened" by the decision, adding that "a traffic accident, however devastating and heartbreaking when a life is lost, is not necessarily a criminal matter."
