Singer-Actress Brandy Facing $50 Million Lawsuit in Car Crash

January 31, 2007 (3:04 am) GMT
Brandy was sued for $50 million on Tuesday Jan 30th by the family of a woman killed in a four-car freeway crash.

Ahmed Aboudihaj and Zohra Labridi, the parents of Awatef Aboudihaj, the woman killed in a car accident involving R&B singer , filed a $50 million wrongful death lawsuit Tuesday January 30th against the star, claiming "Brandy was driving recklessly" when she struck their daughter.

The suit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, comes a day after the California Highway Patrol recommended Brandy be charged with misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter in the Dec. 30 accident. The city attorney's office is reviewing the case. If charged and convicted, Brandy faces up to one year in county jail.

Brandy issued a statement through her publicist last week expressing condolences to the victim's family. There was no immediate word on the lawsuit.

Brandy was driving on Dec. 30 when traffic slowed and her vehicle hit Aboudihaj's. Aboudihaj's car hit another vehicle, slid sideways into the center divider and was then hit by another car. Aboudihaj died at a hospital from blunt-force injuries.
