Famous R&B Singer Involved in Fatal Accident

When someone does a negligent act, he or she will be punished if proven guilty because the law applies to everyone. Today, a number of celebrities are constantly involved in different road accidents. They should remember that they can also be punished by law and their money will not save them from imprisonment if they are convicted.

Another celebrity is rumored to have been involved in a fatal crash. Brandy, a known R&B singer, was reportedly involved in an accident the previous month. Using the statements given by a witness, it appears like the incident happened due to her fault.

According to authorities, the accident occurred on the 405 Freeway in Los Angeles. The singer was driving her 2007 Land Rover at a speed of 65 mph and failed to see that vehicles in front had already reduced speed. Her vehicle reportedly hit a 2005 Toyota, causing the car to smash into a 1989 Toyota.

Then, the 2005 Toyota slid sideways and struck the center divider. A 1988 Acura then hit the 2005 Toyota as it came to a stop.

According to Brandy’s publicist, the singer has confirmed that she was indeed involved in the fatal accident.

The 2005 Toyota driver, Awatef Aboudihaj, 38, from Los Angeles, was in a critical condition when she was brought to Holy Cross Hospital. The woman reportedly died the following day.

Brandy was unharmed and the Acura driver sustained moderate injuries.
The singer was not detained and there is no proof that alcohol or drugs were involved.

Authorities are conducting a mechanical investigation of the vehicles involved to establish whether there was a malfunction.

Brandy will surely be punished if pieces of evidence establish her fault in the accident. She should have followed the traffic rules because a person’s life might be save by doing it.
