Pop wreck Britney Spears crashes AGAIN, causing a THREE car pile-up

Just as things began to look better for Britney, the pop wreck crashes.

Newly-blonde Britney Spears
last night rammed her Mercedes into a vehicle in front of her, which then hit another car.

The 26-year-old Toxic singer was changing motorways in Los Angeles when she caused the pile-up.

were called after the incident at about 8.20pm on Saturday evening, but no one was charged.

The crash follows reports that the star and ex-husband Kevin Federline are giving their relationship another go.

The pair apparently took a recent, romantic mini-break together to the Hawaiian getaway of Maui.

California Highway Patrol Officer Patrick Kimball told US magazine: "Spears was driving a white Mercedes on the 101 Freeway when she struck the rear of a Nissan that was in front of her.

"Britney's car collided into the rear of the Nissan, which in turn hit another car."

Britney was taken for alcohol testing and then released. No injuries were reported, just damage to the cars.
Spears is believed to have spent most of the day at her home in the San Fernando Valley community of Studio City, but was driving in that direction when the accident happened.

Spears has a chequered driving career.

In 2006 she was photographed with her then-infant son, Sean Preston, on her lap instead of in a baby seat, prompting a visit from child protection officers.

Last year hit-and-run charges made against her after she hit a car in a car park were dropped when she agreed to pay the vehicle's owner an undisclosed amount, but she was charged with driving without a license.

In November last year, she was banned from driving with Sean Preston, now two, and 18-month-old Jayden James in the car, after she was pictured jumping a red light with the boys in the car.

She lost custody
to the boys to he ex-husband, Kevin Federline, and in January her limited visitation rights were withdrawn when she refused to hand the boys back to their father after a regular visit and was taken to hospital after a stand-off with police.

After a second stay in a psychiatric ward in January her father, Jamie Spears, was appointed her co-conservator.

Since then she appears to have been behaving better and has regained the right to see her sons.

And it appears she is being further rewarded for her efforts as she rekindles her marriage as well.

According to the Metro, Kevin treated his former wife with a £70,000 diamond encrusted Jacob and Co Royal watch as a belated birthday gift, shortly after their Hawaian escape.

A close source to Jamie Spears said he approved of the mini-vacation and gifts.

"Kevin's whole attitude to his ex-wife has changed. He can see she is staying sober and trying to rebuild her life and career."
