Blonde beauty ANNA NICOLE SMITH stopped traffic when her stretch limousine collided with a BMW outside the Lincoln Tunnel in New York.

The model-turned-reality-TV-star emerged unscathed with her fluffy white puppy from the collision on Friday (10SEP04) after her black limo had just picked her up from a fashion show at Bryant Park.

Another vehicle was quickly dispatched to take Smith and her entourage on to New Jersey's Teterboro Airport and a flight to Las Vegas.
