Tempting Fate? Jamie Lynn Spears Ignored ATV Safety Rules Before Daughter’s Crash
Jamie Lynn Spears’ daughter Maddie did not follow ATV safety regulations in the weeks before her devastating crash, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Jamie Lynn posted a photo of herself with the eight-year-old over the Thanksgiving holiday, showing Maddie proudly behind the wheel of a Polaris Razr 170 ATV.
The Razr 170 is a youth vehicle, but the Polaris website clearly states that the model “is intended for operators age 10 and older,” years beyond Maddie’s age of 8.

In addition, the website states, “All riders should always wear helmets, eye protection, and protective clothing.”
Jamie Lynn and Maddie are clearly not wearing any of those in the photo. (It is not known if they got out of the vehicle after the photo was taken, and put them on before operating it.)
Police have not revealed if that was the ATV involved in a terrifying crash this weekend, which resulted in Maddie’s hospitalization.
As RadarOnline.com reported, her grandma Lynne Spears begged friends for prayers on Facebook, posting a heartbreaking meme that read, “Sometimes, all it takes is just one prayer to change everything.”
Indeed, by Monday morning, Maddie was stabilized at a New Orleans hospital, R.A. Covington – the uncle of Maddie’s dad Jamie Watson – told RadarOnline.com.
A rep for Polaris told RadarOnline.com, "Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. Out of respect for the family’s expressed wish for privacy, we are not commenting on the accident."
A rep for Jamie Lynn did not respond to RadarOnline.com’s request for comment.
