The singer could face a year in jail

Brandy is being sued for negligence and wrongful death by the husband of a woman killed in a car crash involving the singer.

Marouane Hdidou filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court on Wednesday (May 2), and is seeking unspecified damages.

According to a California Highway Patrol report, the singer failed to slow down on December 30 while driving her Land Rover in traffic. She was travelling at approximately 65 mph when her vehicle hit the back of Awatef Aboudihaj‘s Honda.

If Brandy is charged and convicted, she could face up to a year in jail and a $1,000 fine, reports the Associated Press.

Brandy is also facing a $50 million lawsuit from the victim’s parents, as previously reported.

The Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office is now considering whether to charge Brandy with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter.
