Reality TV star Nicole Richie is recovering at home after her car was rear-ended by a photographer in Beverly Hills on Monday.
The 28-year-old was travelling with a passenger when the incident occurred. Neither of her two children - Harlow, 22 months, and one-month-old Sparrow - were with her at the time.
Officers confirmed she complained of pain but no paramedics were called to the scene.
"She told officers she was going to seek her own medical treatment," a member of the police department added.
Apparently Nicole spent several hours at the LA Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre following the collision before heading back to the home she shares with partner Joel Madden and their children.
On Tuesday sources say she was visited by her mum Brenda, who adopted Nicole with former husband Lionel Richie when she was just two.
