The D.A. has rejected the case, saying he was not speeding, he hit the brakes though belatedly, and his conduct was not unreasonable based on all the facts.
Bruce was driving inattentively when he slammed into a Lexus, sending the car into oncoming traffic where it struck a Hummer. The Lexus driver died at the scene.
The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department investigated the accident for almost 6 months before submitting a 161-page report to the D.A. The case was reviewed by the Major Crimes Unit at D.A. headquarters in downtown L.A.
Bruce’s lawyer, Blair Berk, states, “We believed from the start that a thorough and objective investigation would clear Caitlyn of any criminal wrongdoing. We are heartened the District Attorney has agreed that even a misdemeanor charge would not be appropriate. A traffic accident, however devastating and heartbreaking when a life is lost, is not necessarily a criminal matter.”
