Police said Spears, pictured in October, was driving at night when she crashed
Pop star Britney Spears has been involved in a minor road accident on the Ventura Freeway in Los Angeles.
The 26-year-old was driving her Mercedes through slow-moving traffic when she struck a Nissan which had stopped in front of her, police said.
The Nissan bumped into another vehicle but there was no damage and nobody in any of the cars was injured.
Officers from the California Highway Patrol went to the scene but no charges will be brought, a spokesman said.
This is not the first time that Spears has been involved in a traffic accident.
Last August she escaped a hit-and-run charge after paying an undisclosed amount of money to the owner of a vehicle into which she allegedly crashed in a car park.
And in 2006 Spears admitted making a "mistake" after being photographed driving with one of her sons on her lap, rather than strapped into a baby's car seat.
The singer's father, James Spears, currently has control of her assets.
He was granted what is known as "temporary conservatorship" in February after she was admitted to a psychiatric ward.
Spears' publicist did not respond to an e-mail message sent by the Associated Press requesting a comment on the latest incident.
