Bobbi Kristina Car Accident: Star Buys New Automobile After Recent Crash

After walking away from her November car accident unscathed, Bobbi Kristina Brown has reportedly replaced her wrecked Chevy Camaro.

Sources close to the 19-year-old tell TMZ that Brown purchased a new 2013 Lexus IS 250 in December and feels the luxury sport sedan’s “visibility” will lower the chances of having future accidents.

While officials ruled out any evidence of Bobbi Kristina being under the influence, they cited that speeding led to the teen crashing into an embankment and a jogging trail.

“We think speed was a contributing factor,” George Gordon, spokesman for the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety in Georgia told the New York Daily News. “We determined she lost control of the vehicle while going around a curve. Alcohol and drugs were not a factor.”

“We’re fortunate there wasn’t a jogger or someone using the trail system where it ended up.” Brown was cited for “failure to maintain lane” and issued a court date.
