Beverly Hills police Lt. Lincoln Hoshino said Combs was riding in a Cadillac Escalade on Sunset Boulevard on Wednesday when a Lexus sedan turned left in front of it, and the vehicles collided.
Hoshino says Combs complained of pain, but said he would seek his own medical attention. No one from either vehicle was hospitalized.
A phone message left for Combs' publicist was not immediately returned, and Combs made no mention of the crash on his often-updated Twitter account.
Photos posted on celebrity website TMZ showed the Escalade's bumper badly smashed and Combs lying on grass after the crash.
