"I think she was just distracted," said a witness. "She just tapped the other car in front of her."
The bumped car was a red Ford Explorer, while Britney was in her very unlucky white Mercedes. Brit's bodyguard was her only passenger at the time of the fender bender, and sources say that the other driver didn't make a big deal about the crash -- she simply followed Brit back to her gated community to exchange information to avoid all the hoopla from the paparazzi.
Britney really should just get rid of that car -- it's like a death trap.
