Brandy could escape charges

R&B star Brandy could escape criminal charges in relation to a fatal car crash last year - because prosecutors have less than a month remaining to legally press the charges.

R&B star Brandy could escape criminal charges in relation to a fatal car crash last year - because prosecutors have less than a month remaining to legally press the charges.

The singer was involved in a multiple car accident which killed a mother of two, Awatef Aboudihaj, in Los Angeles on December 30 last year.

But unless the LA City Attorney's office finds enough evidence to charge her before the first anniversary of the crash, Brandy, full name Brandy Rayana Norwood, will escape prosecution.

Bill Sayed, lawyer for the victim's husband, Marouane Hdidou, insists the authorities must act quickly.

He told TMZ.com: "There is a death, and obviously reckless driving involved, which is enough evidence for an involuntary manslaughter charge. As to why the City Attorney has taken this long, I think we would all like to know.

"Brandy continues to live life with really no negative results, as though nothing has occurred here."

Brandy was driving her brand- new Range Rover in LA when traffic in front of her slowed down.

She then hit Aboudijah's car, which veered to the left and was hit by another vehicle before crashing into the centre divider. She died in hospital eight hours later. - Wenn
