Caitlyn Jenner has finally broken her silence about the February car crash she was involved in that claimed the life of another woman. In a revealing interview with Matt Lauer on Today, Jenner said she could not say much about the crash as she is involved in litigation, but did admit her fears over possibly being sent to Los Angeles Men's County Jail should she be charged with misdemeanor manslaughter. Jenner also told Lauer that she has had no regrets since she made the decision to transition earlier this year.

Speaking with Lauer as the two played a round of golf, Jenner did admit that the trauma of the car accident is something that will never go away, but was firm in saying that she was traveling under the speed limit of 50mph at the time of the crash. Prosecutors are now trying to determine if Jenner exercised proper caution and what her role was in the crash that killed 69-year-old Kim Howe.

'I remember it happening. That's about it,' said Jenner of the crash. 'A tragedy like this, you'll never get over it. You just learn to live with it the best you possibly can.' She then addressed the possibility she could in fact land in jail.
'The media wants that picture, don't they?' said Jenner of her potential mugshot. 

She then got serious however, saying; 'That is the worst case scenario. I don't know. We'll see. The Men's County Jail. It is an enormous problem that they would put trans-women in Men's County Jail.' Helping Jenner's case is an $18.5million lawsuit that was just filed against Howe's estate buy the passengers of another car in the accident who claim she was the negligent driver.

TMZ reports however that those same passengers may also sue Jenner. Jenner is already being sued by members of Howe's family as well as the driver of another car involved in the crash.  Lawyers for Jenner filed papers last week asking that she not be required to respond to questions put forward by Howe's estate as it would violate her right against self-incrimination while prosecutors are still determining whether or not to file charges. Police have backed up Jenner's claim though that she was driving under the speed limit.
