A Malibu family who sustained injuries in the fatal February car crash involving Caitlyn Jenner has sued the Olympic gold medalist.

The Wolf-Millesi family reportedly filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court Friday suing Jenner for negligence in the Feb. 7 crash that left one woman dead.

In the crash, which happened on the Pacific Coast Highway, Jenner reportedly rear-ended a car driven by Kim Howe into oncoming traffic. A vehicle driven by Peter Wolf-Millesi struck Howe's car, killing her. According to the lawsuit, four members of the Wolf-Millesi family and another occupant of their vehicle sustained serious injuries in the crash.

In a statement after the accident, Jenner called the crash "a devastating tragedy." She added, "I cannot pretend to imagine what this family is going through at this time. I am praying for them."

Jenner previously avoided being charged with manslaughter for the accident but is also reportedly facing lawsuits from Howe's family and another driver who was involved.

Jenner's reps did not immediately reply to The Huffington Post's request for comment.
