The car that Britney Spears was driving ran out of gas Tuesday on a busy California highway — and the cops were called.

The “...Baby One More Time” singer, 40, was driving on the freeway Tuesday night when she told California Highway Patrol her car ran out of gas, according to an incident report obtained by the Daily News.

CHP was notified to a white Mercedes blocking the third lane of the southbound 101, north of Balboa Boulevard, according to the report.

Highway Patrol officers arrived to find the pop star sitting in the back of a good Samaritan passerby’s vehicle in the lane beside her own car, and she “related to the officers her vehicle ran out of gas.”

Spears had to get in the back of the car while Highway Patrol “would help push the vehicle to a safe location off the freeway at Balboa Boulevard.”

They did just that, with an officer in the front, steering.

“Once in a safe location, Mrs. Spears related she was okay and thanked CHP officers for the help. Officers waited with Mrs. Spears until private assistance arrived,” read the report, noting that her husband arrived shortly thereafter.

Back in March, Spears was reportedly ticketed by the agency for driving at an “unsafe speed for prevailing conditions.”

Spears has had a couple of ups and downs, since her nearly 13-year conservatorship was finally terminated late last year.

Spears and new husband Sam Asghari, who got engaged in 2021, announced earlier this year that they were expecting their first child together. Just weeks later, they revealed that Spears had suffered a miscarriage.

Spears and Asghari, 28, who met in 2016 on the set of Spears’ “Slumber Party” music video, tied the knot early last month.
