Janice Dickinson, the outrageous model who not only claims to have coined the term “supermodel,” but to be the first one, was nailed last night.

By a car. What we’re saying is, Janice Dickinson was involved in a hit and run car accident in L.A. late Tuesday.

According to a statement issued by her rep, Dickinson, an assistant, her makeup artist and stylist were on the 405 Freeway when an unknown driver in a semi-truck sideswiped their vehicle into a median and sped away. Police say that contrary to popular belief, Nicole Richie was not driving.

The outspoken old hag, who has bashed Britney Spears and others of late, was wearing a seat belt at the time, thankfully. She was thrown head first into the windshield and suffered a concussion, but it could have been a lot worse.

The group, including the assistant who was driving the vehicle, was taken to the hospital, where they were treated and released. Her rep says that although Janice is shaken, she was given a clean bill of health and is expected to be “back in fine form” for the debut of Season 2 of The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency on January 10.

Wait, there’s a Janice Dickinson reality show? Wow. And we thought America’s Next Top Model was lame. No offense, CariDee English.
