    There is an article today that is titled that as well. I had not heard it either. The woman that was killed was 38 and has a child, so sad.

    ''Police are doing a mechanical investigation of the cars involved in the accident to determine if there was a malfunction."

    From what I have read, Brandy is devastated about this. Accidents DO happen. I would love to hear it was a mechanical failure of some sort, but it sounds like she wasn't paying close enough attention or something.

    911 Calls in Brandy Accident Tell of 'Massive' Incident

    Los Angeles 911 operators were flooded with calls in the minutes following Brandy's fatal car accident last month, as the R&B singer allegedly confessed she was at fault, according to TMZ.com.

    "There's just been a massive car accident on the 405," one caller said.

    "I think there's fatalities or injuries, big time," another said.

    An unidentified witness told TMZ.com that the singer repeatedly said she was at fault for the fatal car accident on Interstate 405 on Dec. 30, 2006.

    According to the article no drugs or alcohol was involved.

    Sounds like she simply did not slow down quick enough.

    It took a long time to get in the news. Especially when there were other witnesses.

    Something tells me she was doing what 90% of the drivers on the 405 freeway in LA do...talking on their cells phones and not paying attention to the road. They were interviewing an accident investigator on the local news here last night and they said you have to be hit pretty hard from behind in order for the injuries to be fatal. Basically they said it would appear in an accident like this, that the driver that struck from behind either didn't break at all or simply stopped too late.

    Looks like the initial hit was not what caused the fatality....it set of a chain reaction of events....

    "We're told Brandy's vehicle struck a 2005 Toyota. The Toyota then hit a 1989 Toyota. The 2005 Toyota then slid sideways and hit the center divider. As the 2005 Toyota came to a halt, it was struck by a 1988 Acura."

    Doesn't make it any less tragic though. People need to pay attention when driving. When you get behind the wheel you have not only your life and your passengers in your hands, but the lives of everyone one else around you in or out of cars.

    I know that Brandy has issued an apology through her agent but I wonder if it has occurred to her to offer monetary assistance to the family of the woman who died? Maybe burial expenses or something? I don't know much about Brandy but I do think, from what I do know, that she is a good person and I know this is probably weighing on her heavily.

    I cant even begin to imagine what one would feel like having been the cause of a fatal accident. I know how I am and it would kill me. I obsess about everything so I would think about it 24/7.

    I believe that's correct-the Accura hit the Toyota. Brandy didn't actualy strike someone and kill them, her car started the chain reaction that led to that.

    I know what you mean, Michelle. Same here. Poor Brandy.
