Police reported that Richie complained of pain, but wanted to seek treatment on her own, so no ambulance was summoned.
The police confirmed that the driver of the car that hit Richie, Edwardo Arrivebene was arrested for driving without a license. Police didn’t know if there were passengers in Arrivebene’s car. Richie had an unnamed adult passenger in her car. Richie just gave birth to her second child, son Sparrow, last month. Richie and Joel Madden also have a daughter Harlow who is two. Neither child was a passenger in the car at the time of the accident.
Later, People magazine confirmed that Richie went to a hospital later in the day, accompanied by her mother. Her car was reported to have “moderate” damage.
