Prosecutors won’t file charges against Caitlyn Jenner in connection with a deadly crash in February on the Pacific Coast Highway in California.

Though deputies believed Jenner started the chain reaction, prosecutors “based on the facts, cannot prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the suspect’s conduct was unreasonable,” said prosecutor Patricia Wilkinson in a declination document.

Jenner could have faced a vehicular manslaughter charge in the Malibu crash that killed 69-year-old Kim Howe. In May, Howe’s family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Jenner, saying the reality star was driving in a “negligent, careless and reckless” manner when her Cadillac Escalade crashed into Howe’s Lexus on the PCH. A month later, Jenner faced another suit from Jessica Steindorff for the injuries she sustained in the crash. Steindorff, who was driving a Toyota Prius, had reportedly been driving with a suspended license.

The crash occurred before Jenner announced her gender transition.
