Update: Prosecution For R&B Singer Brandy’s Fatal Accident still Uncertain

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ.com that officials in the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office are split over whether to prosecute R&B singer Brandy Norwood. According to a source, there was a “conflict” in the City Attorney’s office over whether Brandy should be prosecuted at all. The charge on the table is misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter. According to reports, prosecutors are waiting on technical data that will measure the speed of Brandy’s vehicle on impact. The data will help prosecutors determine if the singer tried to brake before impact. The tests are being conducted by a London based firm. When the results are returned, the City Attorney will make a decision. One source says, “At this point it could go either way.” The accident happened on December 30, 2006 on the 405 Freeway in Los Angeles. According to Law enforcement sources, Brandy was driving her 2007 Land Rover at 65 mph and did not notice that cars in front of her had slowed considerably. Brandy’s vehicle struck a 2005 Toyota, which made the 2005 Toyota hit a 1989 Toyota. The 2005 Toyota lost control and hit the center divider. As the 2005 Toyota came to a halt, it was struck by a 1988 Acura. The driver of the 2005 Toyota was taken to Holy Cross Hospital in critical condition and died the next day.
