"I think she was just distracted," said a witness. "She just tapped the other car in front of her."
Spears, 26, was at the wheel of her white Mercedes-Benz SL65 when she left her Studio City home for an afternoon drive. Shortly thereafter, she rear-ended the SUV.
Her bodyguard, who was sitting shotgun, got out and apparently gave a business card to the other driver, a female. Police were not involved.
Witnesses say the driver of the Explorer followed Spears back to her gated community to exchange information, apparently suggested by the bodyguard to avoid press attention.
Spears was involved in a fender bender in L.A. just last month on April 12. – Ken Lee and Pernilla Cedenheim
