Poor Nicole Richie!

People magazine reports that Richie required medical treatment on Monday after her car was rear-ended by two paparazzi in Beverly Hills. According to Beverly Hills Police Lt. Tony Lee,

“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…Her car sustained moderate damage. No paramedics were called to the scene…She told officers she was going to seek her own medical treatment, so it’s unknown if she’s headed to a hospital or not.”

Richie later went to Cedars Sinai Medical Center to get checkout out.

The driver of the other car was brought into custody and will likely be charged with “a misdemeanor traffic violation,” Lee added.

Benji Madden, brother to Richie’s baby-daddy Joel Madden, came to the scene to aid Nicole.
