According to reports, the singer was driving her Land Rover on California's 405 freeway on 30 December 2006 when she failed to notice cars in front of her were slowing down.
Brandy braked late and collided with a Toyota, which in turn hit another car before striking the central divider. The Toyota was then hit by another car. The driver of the Toyota was taken to Holy Cross Hospital in critical condition and later died.
TMZ.com is also reporting that Brandy has admitted to being at fault in the fatal accident. In an exclusive conversation with the man driving directly behind Brandy at the time of her fateful crash, TMZ.com reports that the singer repeatedly blamed herself at the scene of the accident.
TMZ has more: '"She got upset, talking about how it was all her fault ... she didn't stop, kept saying how she hit the lady," says the witness.
He added, "Brandy walked in front of traffic, crossing the lanes of speeding cars, then she did it again. People were honking at her to get out of the road. She was obviously disoriented and highly upset."
The witness also claims he tried to calm the hysterical singer, and even dished out some legal advice, saying he advised her to stop admitting guilt. He also consoled her by repeatedly saying "It was an accident."'
