Sean "Diddy" Combs is being treated for injuries he sustained during a minor car accident in Beverly Hills, Calif.

A spokeswoman for the 42-year-old rapper-producer says he hurt his neck, ribs and collarbone in the crash Wednesday on Sunset Boulevard near the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Combs was a passenger in a Cadillac Escalade when a Lexus sedan made a left turn and collided with it. A police lieutenant said Combs complained of pain but he was not taken to a hospital at the time. Photos taken after the accident found Combs lying on the ground.

Publicist Keesha Johnson said Thursday that doctors are now treating Combs, and he is grateful for the outpouring of fan support following the accident.

Combs is expected to make an appearance on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" this season, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He's also attached to the upcoming film, "Shoedog," starring Heather Graham, Sam Shepard and Kris Kristofferson.
