Nicole Richie Involved in Car Accident

Breaking News! Nicole Richie was just involved in a car accident in Beverly Hills.

Nicole was trying to flee the paparazzi when she got rear ended by one of them this afternoon.

"Ms. Richie was driving with a passenger around 2 p.m. when she was struck by two photographers driving in one vehicle behind her," Lt Tony Lee of the Beverly Hills Police told People magazine.

"She complained of pain, and her passenger is transporting her to a local hospital. Her car sustained moderate damage. No paramedics were called to the scene."

Nicole was with her mother Brenda during the incident. Brenda didn't suffer any injuries, but she accompanied Nicole to the hospital. Luckily, her two young kids weren't in the car at the time of the accident.

The pap that rear ended her is being arrested and booked for being unlicensed because "officers could not verify his identification," Lt. Lee added.

"He's being physically brought into the station. This will likely be a misdemeanor traffic violation, and the photographer's vehicle will be towed."
