Singer involved in fatal accident

Brandy has been involved in a four car crash that left one woman dead.

According to a report on BBC News, the singer failed to slow down and hit the back of another car, according to California Highway Patrol.

The car, driven by Awatef Aboudihaj, hit another vehicle and slid sideways before it was hit by an oncoming car. Aboundihaj later died in hospital.

Her death was ruled an accident but is being investigated. Brandy told officers that she was driving around 65 mph (104 kph) when the crash occurred on December 30.

Highway Patrol spokesman Leland Tang said: “We’ve impounded all four vehicles, and the outcome of the mechanical inspection is coming to us today or tomorrow.”

He added: “Barring any mechanical difficulties on Brandy’s part there’s the very high probability that she is the party most at fault or the contributing party.”

Brandy’s publicist issued the statement: “She wishes to publicly express her condolences to the family of the deceased.”

The statement also asked the media to “respect the privacy of everyone involved at this time”.
