Perhaps because her mind was elsewhere as she contemplated the significance of Neil Patrick Harris' recent comments, Britney Spears was involved in a minor car accident Saturday night on Los Angeles' northbound 405.

Police reports say that Spears, traveling in stop-and-go traffic, did not see a Nissan (it's always some poor Nissan, isn't it?) directly in front of her come to a full stop. Spears attempted to brake in time but instead her Mercedes collided with the rear of the Nissan, which in turn hit another car.

No injuries were reported, no tickets handed out. - MWM
