LOS ANGELES – R&B singer Brandy will not face criminal charges stemming from a fatal freeway collision, Los Angeles city prosecutors announced today. The singer, whose full name is Brandy Norwood, 28, rear-ended a vehicle on the San Diego (405) Freeway near Sepulveda Boulevard on Dec. 30, 2006, killing Awatef Aboudihaj, the 38-year-old driver of the vehicle Brandy hit, died several hours after the collision. “The City Attorney’s Office has decided not to file misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter charges,” said spokesman Frank Mateljan. “After conducting a thorough investigation, which included consulting with some of the top accident reconstruction experts in the country, city prosecutors concluded that there was insufficient evidence from which a jury could find Ms. Norwood guilty of such a charge beyond a reasonable doubt.” Earlier this week, the celebrity news Web site TMZ.com reported that the California Highway Patrol investigation found that Aboudihaj had struck the vehicle in front of her then slammed on her brakes, causing Brandy’s Land Rover to rear-end her Toyota. last_img
