Denise Richards and her young daughter were involved in a car accident yesterday in Beverly Hills.

The actress and mother of two was putting her daughter Sam, the oldest into a car seat in the back of her Mercedes ML 450, when another driver sideswiped the car.

A Bentley, driven by an unknown occupant, hit the rear passenger door, bending it out of shape and also nicking the front, driver’s door. Denise and her daughter were on the other side of the car at the time.

From footage obtained by Access Hollywood, it appears neither Denise or her daughter were seriously injured. The two waited on the side of the street for authorities to arrive. Denise gave her daughter a cupcake, played with the little girl and made calls for help on her cell phone.

A police officer arrived and assisted in the matter as did a tow truck driver.

Denise’s current flame, Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora turned up too, in his Toyota Sequoia. Wearing a cowboy hat, the rocker helped his lady move her things into his car. They tucked the child safely in the back and drove away from the accident.

Things weren’t as easy for the tow truck driver. He was spotted arguing with on the scene photographers who captured the incident on camera.
