Police Report Confirms Jamie Lynn Spears Witnessed Her Daughter's ATV Accident & Tried To Rescue Her — Get The Intense Details
This is much worse than we thought.
Last night, it was reported that Jamie Lynn Spears' daughter Maddie was in critical condition after an ATV accident on a hunting trip.
The 25-year-old later released a statement saying the media reports surrounding the accident were "incorrect," but did not clarify what actually happened to the 8-year-old.
Now, a newly released police report sheds more details on the harrowing incident, and it turns out Jamie Lynn saw the entire accident unfold right in front of her.
According to a statement by Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff Daniel Edwards, the crash did not take place on a hunting trip, but on the family property — right in front of Spears and her husband Jamie Watson.
Just before 3:00 p.m. on Sunday afternoon, Maddie was reportedly steering the ATV to avoid running over a nearby drainage ditch, and "overcorrected," causing the ATV to flip into a pond and submerge under the water.
The report explained that Jamie Lynn and her husband dove in and tried to rescue the girl, but were unable to free her from her safety belt and the ATV netting.
