Nicole Richie injured in car accident


Nicole Richie was taken to a Los Angeles hospital Monday after being involved in a car accident. The reality star, who recently gave birth to her second child with boyfriend Joel Madden, was injured when a car carrying two photographers rear-ended her.

Richie and Madden’s children were not in the car at the time of the accident. Richie was carrying a passenger, who drove her to the hospital after the accident. The extent of Richie’s injuries are unknown.

“Ms. Richie was driving with a passenger around 2 p.m. when she was struck by two photographers driving in one vehicle behind her. 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,” says Beverly Hills Police Lt. Tony Lee.

The driver was arrested for not having a license as “officers could not verify his identification.”

No other details were available.
