Britney in car crash

BRITNEY SPEARS has added to her legal woes after reportedly causing a three-car pile-up on Los Angeles' Ventura Freeway.

The pop superstar went for an evening spin in her Mercedes with her bodyguard yesterday and accidentally bumped another motorist in heavy traffic on her way home. According to reports the car she hit then smashed in to the vehicle in front.

All three cars were pulled over by police at a nearby gas station, where, according to an eyewitness, the authorities tested to see if Spears had been drinking.

The bystander, who saw the accident and the commotion that followed, said: "Britney just appeared to lose concentration and drove into the car in front of her."

In the past 12 months, the singer has been charged with a hit and run offence and driving without a valid licence.

She's also battling for custody of her two young sons with ex-husband Kevin Federline.
