Brandy Off the Hook in Fatal Car Crash Case

Well, it looks Brandy will be able to start off her new year with an almost-clean slate.

The singer, whose December 2006 car crash with Awatef Aboudihaj resulted in the woman's death, will not face criminal charges. Brandy's Land Rover hit the back of a Honda driven by Aboudihaj, whose car then hit a third vehicle, before being struck by someone else. A rep for the city attorney's office spokesman told Usmagazine.com: "The City Attorney's Office has decided not to file misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter charges against Brandy Norwood in the case stemming from a December 30, 2006 traffic collision. After conducting a thorough investigation, which included consulting with some of the top accident reconstruction experts in the country, City prosecutors concluded that there was insufficient evidence from which a jury could find Ms. Norwood guilty of such a charge beyond a reasonable doubt."

Though this is really good news for the singer, Brandy has yet to resolve the four wrongful-death suits filed by Aboudihaj's family and another victim of the crash. Her trial date is set for January 28.
