R&B singer Brandy Norwood was involved in a multiple-car accident that claimed the life of a 38-year old woman, according to reports. The accident allegedly occurred at 10:30 AM on December 30, 2006 on the 405 Freeway in Los Angeles.
While driving her 2007 Land Rover, Brandy accidentally struck a 2005 Honda in front of her, which in turn crashed into a 1989 Toyota. The 2005 Honda, driven by 38-year old Awatef Aboudihaj, then spun sideways and struck the center divider. As Aboudihaj’s Honda came to a halt, it was pummeled by an oncoming 1988 Acura.
Aboudihaj was taken to a hospital, where she died of injuries, according to reports.
Brandy, who went unscathed in the accident, was terribly disoriented after the accident. A witness who talked to TMZ.com claims that Brandy repeatedly blamed herself for the accident, even walking back and forth in front of speeding lanes.
In a statement released through her publicist, Brandy also confirmed her involvement in the fatal car accident and wishes to publicly express her condolences to the family of the deceased.
