Bruce Jenner has been sued for wrongful death as a result of a car crash that killed a neighbor of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians family back in February. Kim Howe was killed when Jenner's SUV pushed her car into oncoming traffic following what might have been a simple fender bender.

On the heels of his interview with Diane Sawyer, this likely has Bruce Jenner in a bit of a panic. Even though he wasn't criminally charged for his part in the car crash, it's clear that Kim Howe's family is out for blood--or money, so it seems.

The stepchildren of the woman killed in the crash have sued Bruce Jenner for what is expected to be a huge sum of money--although no amount has yet been disclosed to the media. The wrongful death case was filed on Friday by Dana Redmond and William Howe, who claim to have sustained 'enormous damages.'

The lawsuit reportedly claims that Bruce Jenner was "negligent, careless and reckless" when he slammed into Howe's Lexus on the Pacific Coast Highway, causing it to careen into oncoming traffic where it collided head on with a Hummer.

Alan Nierob, who serves as a publicist for Bruce Jenner, declined comment.

During last Friday night's interview with Diane Sawyer, which aired on ABC's 20/20, it became quite clear that Bruce Jenner has lots of support from his family members and his friends in his transition from a man to a woman. Even ex-wives Chrystie Crownover and Linda Thompson support the Olympian. Kris Jenner shared her support prior to the interview via Twitter.

Certainly all these people who love and are supporting Bruce Jenner through his transition will support him through this wrongful death suit, too. Hopefully it isn't more than the Keeping Up With the Kardashians patriarch can endure.
