Britney Spears' mother is still haunted by a 30-year-old car crash that ended a young boy's life.
Lynne Spears was just 20 when she hit 12-year-old Anthony Winters, while taking her brother to hospital after he had suffered an injury.
Spears has been able to keep the sad story from the media until now, and her spokeswoman, Louise Taylor, has confirmed a new National Enquirer article is accurate.
Taylor insists the 53 year old is still scarred by the incident, which took place in her hometown of Kentwood, Louisiana.
The spokeswoman says, "Anthony Winters and his friends were in the road on a curve on a bicycle. As Lynne rounded the curve, she could not avoid the boy in the street, as there was oncoming traffic in the opposite lane.
"The boy died at the hospital as a result of his injuries. Lynn, to this day, is grieved by the Winters' loss of their son."
