LOS ANGELES (AP) — A woman injured in a fatal crash involving Caitlyn Jenner settled her lawsuit against the Olympic gold medalist, according to court papers.

Jessica Steindorff had sought unspecified damages against Jenner in the Feb. 7 crash that killed one woman and injured several others along the Malibu coast.

One of Jenner's lawyers stated in court papers filed Dec. 15 in Los Angeles County Superior Court that the suit had been settled and dismissed. No terms of the settlement were mentioned.

Jenner, 66, was hauling an off-road vehicle behind a Cadillac Escalade when she steered to avoid cars slowing for a traffic light on Pacific Coast Highway.

Jenner rear-ended two cars — a Lexus driven by Kim Howe and a Prius driven by Steindorff. Howe, 69, was killed when her car was pushed into the path of an oncoming Hummer.

Sheriff's investigators determined Jenner was traveling at an unsafe speed for traffic conditions.

Prosecutors declined to file a vehicular manslaughter charge against Jenner, who won a 1976 Olympic gold medal in decathlon as Bruce Jenner before recently transitioning to a transgender woman.

Howe's stepchildren are suing Jenner for wrongful death and a family traveling in the Hummer also sued for damages.

Philip Boesch Jr., one of the Jenner's lawyers, said in an email that the Steindorff case had been dismissed, but he would not comment further.

An attorney for Steindorff did not immediately return calls or a message seeking comment.
