Lynne, who was 20 at the time, ran over 12-year-old Anthony Winters while he rode his bike in Kentwood, Louisiana.
According to the publication, Lynne is still haunted by the tragedy, and doesn't like to talk about it.
She was not charged in the accident, and did not respond to Radar’s request for comment.
The child's mother, Yvonne Winters, opened up about the incident for the first time, and told RadarOnline.Com that Lynne had never reached out to apologise.
“It’s been 40-some years ago, but she’s never been in touch with me,” Yvonne told the publication.
“It was an accident. It was a terrible situation, but it was an accident, and accidents can happen to anyone.”
