Britney Spears was involved in a minor traffic accident late Saturday, apparently due to distraction while she was driving her 2008 Mercedes-Benz. The Web site TMZ.com says, "She was driving the same way most women in L.A. do — putting on her makeup behind the wheel."
The wags at the celebrity-tracking Web site characterize the incident as resulting in only "cosmetic damage." The Associated Press reports that no one was injured in the crash. It said that Spears was in stop-and-go traffic when her car struck a 2006 Nissan in front of her that had stopped. The Nissan then struck another vehicle, but neither vehicle was damaged. The AP says no one was cited in the traffic mishap.
