by at . Comments

We admire celebrity gossip photographers' relentless pursuit of the latest Hollywood news, but they should at least follow the rules of the road. Those jerks.

Nicole Richie is seeking medical treatment following a car accident, police say, after sh rear-ended in her Land Rover by a paparazzo in Beverly Hills.

The run-in took place just before 2 p.m. on Monday, Lt. Tony Lee said.

"She complained of pain," he said, adding that Nicole Richie refused medical care at the scene but is "going to seek her own medical treatment."

According to a witness, the 28-year-old mother of two went to L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Medical Center with her mother to be treated for minor injuries.

Nicole Richie is okay but seeking treatment.

The driver who rear-ended Richie was arrested and charged with driving without a license, and is in the process of being "physically booked," Lee said.

Police are still trying to verify his identity.

A police spokesperson could not confirm if anyone was speeding at the time of the collision but said that they weren't at a traffic light or intersection.

An unnamed adult was a passenger in Richie's car, but her two children - Harlow, 20 months, and Sparrow, born Sept. 9 - were not in the vehicle.

Get well soon Nicole!
