Many people emailed this story to me and I wanted to wait to get the news from more sources for accurancy. Turns out, TMZ’s report is indeed true…read on:
Actress and R&B singer Brandy was involved in a fatal, four-car accident on a Los Angeles freeway last month that started when her sports utility vehicle hit another car from behind, police said on Wednesday.
The 27-year-old former star of the TV comedy “Moesha” was not injured, but the driver of the car she rear-ended with her Land Rover in the December 30 crash died, according to the California Highway Patrol. The victim was identified as Awatef Aboudihaj, 38, a married mother of one, said CHP spokesman Leland Tang.
No charges or arrests have been made in connection with the accident, and no formal determination has been made as to what caused the crash, which was first reported by the celebrity news Web site TMZ.com.
He said the chain-reaction wreck started when Brandy’s vehicle ran into the back of the car driven by Aboudihaj, whose car struck a third vehicle, then swerved into the freeway’s center divider and was broad-sided by a fourth automobile.
A statement issued by Brandy’s publicist said: “She wishes to publicly express her condolences to the family of the deceased” and asks the media to “respect the privacy of everyone involved at this time.” READ MORE @ REUTERS>>>
TMZ.com also spoke with a witness who described Brandy at the scene of the accident. The witness stated that Brandy “got upset, talking about how it was all her fault … she didn’t stop, kept saying how she hit the lady,”. He added that Norwood “walked in front of traffic, crossing the lanes of speeding cars, then she did it again. People were honking at her to get out of the road. She was obviously disoriented and highly upset.”
I kind of shocked that the news is just getting out when it happened almost a month ago.
