Sean "Diddy" Combs was shaken up in a car crash in front of the Beverly Hills Hotel yesterday, though hip-hop mogul was not taken to the hospital, The Associated Press reports.

According to Beverly Hills police Lt. Lincoln Hoshino, Combs was a passenger in a Cadillac Escalade riding down Sunset Boulevard when a Lexus sedan turned left in front of the vehicle, causing the collision. 

While Hoshino says Combs was complaining of pain, he decided to seek his own medical treatment rather than be taken to a hospital. Pictures from TMZ show the totaled front of the car and Combs lying on the grass following the crash. 

There's been no word from Combs or his camp about the incident or the extent to which he was injured.

“Bird on a Wire”

Leonard Cohen | 1969

While living on the Greek island of Hydra, Cohen was battling a lingering depression when his girlfriend handed him a guitar and suggested he play something. After spotting a bird on a telephone wire, Cohen wrote this prayer-like song of guilt. First recorded by Judy Collins, it would be performed numerous times by artists incuding Johnny Cash, Joe Cocker and Rita Coolidge. "I'm always knocked out when I hear my songs covered or used in some situation," Cohen told Rolling Stone. "I've never gotten over the fact that people out there like my music."
