Caitlyn Jenner is reaching the end of her legal battles after last February's car accident on the Pacific Coast Highway caused the death of another driver, Kim Howe.

TMZ has gained court documents that confirm the lawsuit filed against Jenner by the victim's adult stepchildren will be dismissed. The stepchildren, William Howe and Dana Redmond, were seeking compensation for "enormous damages and losses," but they have now filed a dismissal (as has Jenner through her lawyer).

According to TMZ, the parties were able to settle for a "very modest amount" due to the fact that the stepchildren did not have firm legal standing. Jenner had previously argued that they were not financially dependent on Kim Howe, so they could not financially affected by the loss.

Back in February 2015, Jenner rear-ended Kim Howe's Lexus, causing it to spin into oncoming traffic and be hit head-on by a Hummer. A Prius was also involved in the collision.

Jenner has already had all criminal charges of vehicular manslaughter dropped, and this is one more closure on one of the civil lawsuits. Late in 2015, she settled a suit with the driver of the Prius, so now she has one last lawsuit from the driver of the Hummer.

Based on the early reports from TMZ, Jenner's insurance has covered all of the damages so far, so the lawsuits have not cost her anything from her own pocket.
