Spokesman Nick Velasquez said there is "insufficient evidence" for a jury to find the 28-year-old artist guilty of misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter beyond a reasonable doubt.
The decision runs counter to a recommendation from the California Highway Patrol that Brandy, whose real name is Brandy Norwood, be charged in the Dec. 30, 2006, crash.
Brandy was driving on a Los Angeles freeway when traffic slowed and her Land Rover smashed into the back of a Honda. That car was involved in several other collisions. The driver, 38-year-old Awatef Aboudihaj, died in the accident.
