Chris Brown Car Accident

Paps Call BS

We Didn't Cause the Crash!

EXCLUSIVE

crash_scene_launch_wmChris Brown's single car accident yesterday afternoon left his car totaled and the wall he hit shattered in pieces ... but the paparazzi on the scene are calling BS on Chris' story that it was their fault.

Brown's rep released a statement yesterday claiming he was cut off by two photographers and blamed the accident on "aggressive pursuit by the paparazzi." The photos above show the aftermath of the crash with Chris talking to cops and his car being towed away.

TMZ spoke with Chris Doherty, owner of INF, the photo agency that employed all the photographers on scene. He tells us that he is positive his photogs "had nothing to do with Chris Brown crashing."

Doherty says his photogs arrived AFTER Chris crashed, telling TMZ, "No photographers were following him at the time he crashed ... He crashed his car and it’s convenient for him to blame us. He needs to be careful with his defamatory statements."

Doherty also says his photogs were interviewed on scene by police who "appeared to be satisfied" the photogs were not the cause of the accident.

A spokesman for the Beverly Hills PD would not comment on the accident beyond the press release sent out yesterday:

"On February 9, 2013 at approximately 1203pm, entertainer Chris Brown was involved in a solo, non-injury traffic collision in the 600 Block Bedford Drive/Camden Drive alley. Mr. Brown was the driver of the vehicle and collided with a wall. Brown stated that he was being chased by paparazzi causing him to lose control of his vehicle. Brown's Black Porsche was towed from the scene at his request."

A rep for Brown tells TMZ they are considering a lawsuit over the crash.

He's an idiot. He crashed into a wall, photogs showed up so he said it was their fault. Guess there were no gay or female photogs or he woulda punched one,

Just because you have Pap's following you doesn't give you the right to drive recklessly. He can say they were trying to block him in but it's more likely that he was driving unsafely and lost control and they blocked him in so he couldn't just drive off.

You keep saying left his car totaled, but thats wrong, very wrong. I've totaled several cars and that isn't even close to totaled. Its mere plastic damage. To total a car the damage needs to be 70% of the value. That damage is a couple grand at most. Not nearly enough to total a $170k car, especially since the engine is in the back and sustained no damage, and it appears the airbags didn't fire. Not even close to totaled.
