Brandy Causes Fatal Car Crash

R&B singer Brandy was involved in a fatal accident last month, and it appears to be her fault.

The accident occurred at 10:30 AM on December 30, 2006 on the 405 Freeway in Los Angeles. Law enforcement sources say that Brandy was driving her 2007 Land Rover at 65 mph and didn't notice that cars in front of her had slowed down. Brandy's car hit a 2005 Toyota. The Toyota then hit a 1989 Toyota. The 2005 Toyota then slid sideways and hit the center divider. As the 2005 Toyota came to a halt, it was struck by a 1988 Acura.

The driver of the 2005 Toyota was taken to Holy Cross Hospital in critical condition and was pronounced dead. Brandy was not injured. Brandy was not arrested and there is no evidence drugs or alcohol were involved.

A publicist for Brandy released the following statement:

"Brandy was involved in a car accident December 30, 2006 in Los Angeles where there was a fatality. She wishes to publicly express her condolences to the family of the deceased. Brandy asks that you respect the privacy of everyone involved at this time. "
