According to TMZ, Polizzi was driving when she struck the back of a police car, wedging her vehicle between the patrol car and a highway protection wall. The website posted photos showing Polizzi and co-star Deena Nicole Cortese, apparently uninjured, sitting on the sidewalk after the crash.

The website reports that Polizzi was taken into custody after the incident, but was not formally arrested.

MTV said in a statement late Monday that two cast members were involved in a crash. The statement said no alcohol was involved and no one was arrested. It provided no further details.

Phone messages left for Snooki's manager, Scott Talarico, by The Associated Press were not immediately returned Monday night.

SallyAnn Salsano, executive producer at "Jersey Shore" production company 495, tells The Star-Ledger newspaper that the incident was "just a minor fender bender." She says the show is still filming.

The show's first and third season were filmed in Seaside Heights, N.J. The second season sent the cast to Miami.
