First Brandy and now this. Director John Singleton was involved in a fatal crash Thursday night that killed a pedestrian.
LAPD officers tell TMZ Singleton was driving his 2001 Lexus SUV around 8:00 p.m. on a Los Angeles street when a female pedestrian, not in a crosswalk, suddenly stepped out in front of Singleton’s car. Police say Singleton immediately stopped and waited for police and ambulances to arrive. The 57-year-old woman, identified as Constance Russell of Los Angeles, was taken to a nearby hospital where she unfortunately died Friday morning.
Police tell TMZ Singleton was not speeding at the time and was not under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Cops say their investigation has concluded and they’ve determined that this is a “very, very unfortunate accident.” Singleton will not be cited for any violation.
There is nothing like cruising down the street and accidentally bodying someone’s grandma to f*ck up a good night. Condolences to the family.
