COUNTRY STAR'S SINGING THE TRAFFIC-TICKET BLUES

Country singer Tim McGraw has paid an $84 fine for speeding in a one-car accident that injured him and his passenger.

A charge of reckless driving was dropped Friday because there were no witnesses to the March 18 accident, publicist Cindy Whitley said.The state highway patrol said the crash occurred when McGraw's car rounded a curve too fast and skidded off a rural road south of Nashville, Tenn. McGraw said he was driving 10 mph above the 45 mph speed limit when he swerved to avoid a deer.

Passenger Donald Murphy was slightly injured.
