Paparazzo Seriously Injured in Spears Madness

11/13/2007 12:26 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: Miraculously, the victim was released from the hospital last night with only a tire mark on his arm. Not a single broken bone, and no internal injuries. Lucky guy!

TMZ has confirmed a paparazzo on a motorcycle has been injured while chasing Britney Spears.

The accident, first reported by That Other Blog, happened around 5:00 PM tonight, roughly a mile from the Beverly Hills Four Seasons Hotel. Several cars were in line chasing the pop princess when one hit another photog on a motorcycle, throwing the rider off the bike and onto the road. We're told the rider was seriously injured and transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. His current condition is unknown.

UPDATE: We're told that the injured person is what is known as a "spotter," and does not actually carry a camera. He will follow the star and tip off other photographers to her whereabouts. We hear he's fairly new to the Britney beat, only appearing on the scene in the past several days.

reporters are supposed to report . not dig into private matters and make news to fit their colums if one of the idiots wants to stick their head under a wheel of a celerbrites car they should be smashed. not write the girl ran me over nut if you have any balls at all , get a job and leave reporting to facts that happen naturally

LULU.... We have no right to judge and we should grow up but you are calling Kerri a loser so you are a hypocrite and people on here are mad (I cant speak for everyone of course) because they are parents, or people who love and care about children and are very disturbed by her actions.. Something you may not understand

Paparazzo were practically sitting under the car. No wonder they got hurt. If I went around putting myself under cars as they were driving, I'd get run over too. But I guess the paparazzo aren't very bright. And they don't seem to learn their lesson either because they keep doing it. Even though people keep yelling at them to "please move" they just continue to stand in the way...waiting to get run over.

If you ask me, that's what he gets. Making a living off of following people and taking their picture at inoppurtune times is sick. It was just a matter of time really. I know that sounds a little harsh, but I don't have any sympathy for papparazzi or anyone who helps them.
