Alaskan Bush People star Joshua Brown was involved in a car accident that killed a woman. Bam Bam Brown was also hospitalized after the accident.
The U.S. Sun reports that Joshua Brown, whom fans know as the beloved Bam Bam, was involved in a car accident that allegedly caused the death of a woman.
The accident occurred Friday when Bam Bam Brown, 37, was driving his GMC northbound on SR 97. A black Chevrolet Camaro heading south collided with Joshua’s vehicle in a head-on collision. A 24-year-old woman who was in the passenger seat of the Camaro died in the crash. Police told The Sun that “Joshua was not at fault for the crash.”
According to police, the driver of the Camero lost control, crossed lanes and moved into Joshua’s lane of travel. Local broadcaster iFiberOne reported that the Camero stopped on the centerline.
Police also said Bam Bam Brown tried to swerve to avoid the oncoming car and ended up in a ditch. Joshua was unable to pull away completely and the cars collided on the curve.
Joshua was taken to Mid Valley Hospital. He was reportedly treated for minor injuries and has since been discharged. The driver of the Camero was taken to Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee, while her passenger died.
Joshua Brown, along with his mother Ami and siblings, is still adjusting to life without his father. Billy Brown died in 2021, and his death was recounted in the final season of Alaskan Bush People, as well as the repercussions for the family grieving the loss of their father.
Since then there has been no word on whether or not Alaskan Bush People will return in some form on Discovery. Billy was the man in charge of making the deals, and his widow Ami is in the middle of a lawsuit with a man who claims Billy’s estate owes him money for helping to fund the show.
Joshua’s brother Bear Brown has recently been in legal trouble and spent a weekend in jail following allegations of domestic abuse, although he recently accepted a plea deal and is back with Raiven and their son River.
