Time is running out for the L.A. City Attorney’s Office to file criminal charges against R&B star Brandy for her involvement in the death of a woman last December, due to a fatal car accident. According to TMZ, Brandy has yet to be charged with vehicular manslaughter, and statutes only allow one year from the date of the incident to file criminal charges, and the first anniversary of the accident is coming up fast! Sources say the City Attorney’s Office won’t make a decision until that last moment. If charges aren’t filed, the holiday rush will keep the public from noticing and the case might just disappear quietly.
The fatal car accident occurred on December 30th 2006 around 10:30 A.M. Brandy was reportedly driving northbound on the 405 Freeway, going about 65 MPH in her Range Rover. She didn’t notice when traffic in front of her slowed and rammed into Awatef Aboudijah’s car, causing the victim to veer to the left where she was hit by another car before slamming into the center median. Awatef died eight hours later at the hospital, succumbing to massive internal bleeding.
