Brandy Off The Hook In Fatal Car Crash

brandySinger Brandy Norwood has been completely cleared and won't be charged in the deadly car crash she was involved in last year. The LA county DA's office said Friday there was "insufficient evidence" for a jury to find her guilty of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter beyond a reasonable doubt.

Brandy was driving on a Los Angeles freeway December 30 2006 when traffic slowed and her Land Rover smashed into the back of a Honda. The driver, 38-year-old Awatef Aboudihaj, died in the accident. But ...

According to the California Highway Patrol, the investigation found that Aboudihaj actually struck the car in front of her and then slammed on her brakes before Brandy made contact.

Brandy's attorney, Blair Berk, released the following statement exclusively to TMZ:

"We are extremely pleased that after a more thorough and extensive investigation by authorities, the Los Angeles City Attorney has determined that Brandy Norwood should not be charged with any crime whatsoever relating to the accident back in 2006."

She continued, "These past 12 months have posed an extraordinary hardship for Brandy and her family, who have been unfairly forced to live under a cloud of suspicion initially caused by the ill-advised and premature press release sent out by the California Highway Patrol accusing Brandy of wrongdoing before the police investigation was even finished. However, Brandy continues to be mindful that she was so fortunate to be uninjured in this accident and there was a life lost that should be remembered."
