Nicole Richie was rear-ended by paparazzi in Beverly Hills on Monday and was expected to seek medical attention, police tell PEOPLE.

“Ms. Richie was driving with a passenger around 2 p.m. when she was struck by two photographers driving in one vehicle behind her,” said Lt. Tony Lee of the Beverly Hills Police. “She complained of pain … Her car sustained moderate damage. No paramedics were called to the scene.”

He added: “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’s two children were not in the vehicle, but their uncle, Benji Madden, arrived on the scene to help out.
