( AFP ) - Pop diva Britney Spears was involved in a minor traffic accident on a Los Angeles freeway but there were no injuries in the three-car incident, police said Sunday.
Spears, 26, who has kept a low profile recently after undergoing psychiatric evaluation amid spiralling personal problems, shunted her 2008 Mercedes into the rear of a car in the suburb of Sherman Oaks late Saturday.
California Highway Patrol officer Patrick Kimball said Spears had attempted to stop but was unable to brake in time.
The car Spears hit was pushed into another car. No damage was done to the car Spears hit and there were no injuries, Kimball added.
Spears, one of the most successful female pop stars in history, has dominated celebrity headlines over the past year after being stripped of the custody of her children following her split from ex-husband Kevin Federline.
Fears about her mental health led to her twice being whisked to a Los Angeles hospital earlier this year where she was kept under observation.
