Britney Had Cosmetic Damage Before Crash

4/13/2008 6:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Minutes before Britney Spears caused a three car crash on a Saturday night, she was driving the same way most women in L.A. do -- putting on her makeup behind the wheel!

TMZ spoke with the guy she hit, who says before the accident, he was admiring the white Mercedes and the woman putting on makeup while driving it. It wasn't until after she hit him at an estimated 10-15 MPH that he realized the woman was Britney. The man also says he wasn't sure if she was still putting on makeup at the time of the crash.

After the smash up, Britney's bodyguard apologized for the incident, but Britney never got around to doing the same. Brit and the 21-year-old crashee only exchanged a few words, but she did mention she was on the way to dinner with her mom.

As far as the field sobriety test is concerned, the crashee says officers performed the ol' "follow my finger test" on Brit. At first she was giggly, but she got real serious real quick. BTW -- she was the only person involved who was tested. CHP claims the test was S.O.P. telling us, "We do a standard check on most drivers .... especially during those hours."

While no injuries were reported on the scene, the man claims that he woke up with a sore back this morning and is looking into booking an appointment with a chiropractor.

Oh that's a shock! You bet he will be seeing a chiropractor, right after he sees a lawyer. Another leech trying to hook onto Britney.

First off TMZ that is a stupid sexist statement about the make-up but since I am not from LA whatever. He woke up with a "backache" and is going to a chiropractor? Lawsuit!!!

I agree. The only reason to see a Chiropractor after an accident is for the purpose of a lawsuit. I see two years' worth of 'adjustments' to his back, maybe a neck collar for awhile and thousand$ of 'alternative health care' bills.

Why do people always rush out to the chiro after an njury/car accident. Go see an actual doctor people. A medical doctor, not a doctor of chriopractic medicine. All the chiro will do is give you some modalities (look it up) and prolbablly want to adjust you. And if this guy in the car doesn't have a lawyer you can bet this chiro willhave a few to refer him to. The only good thing about chiro's post accident is that your settlement check willbe bigger, cutting a doctor and treatment fee out. Terrible, freaking chiro's...

a chiropractor is NOT the way to go.

CHIROPRACTORS ARE NOT DOCTORS.

he should go to an orthopedic doctor.

i have been in car accidents where i am the victum in a rear ender. most times, even if the car that hits you is only going 10-15 mph you do not experience pain for several days or longer. that is why we have INSURANCE! the claim goes against the persons insurance co. & this is no different than being hit by any citizen. the victums will not get anymore
money than if you or i hit them. the money will not be taken out of Britney's pocket! the fact that the cars were going very slow will be taken into consideration. SO GET OVER IT!

you can experience pain no matter how fast or slow the car behind you is going.

Should he not look at the road insted of persons in other cars?
Did he look at her at his rear-view mirror or was he driving beside and then in front of her, looking in the mirror and causing "the accidetn" himself???

and to the poster who says that a GP is the doc to go to, not a chiropractor, BS! a GP can do nothing for you expect prescribe pills. a chiropractor can give you PT treatments & adjustments, if deemed necessary, have only helped me in the past. one should always wait, however, at least a week so any inflamation can decrease. and if a person already has previous neck & back problems, being rear-ended can only add to already existing pain.
