According to witnesses at the scene, Rihanna's driver tried to speed away from photographers after the R&B star left the restaurant Da Silvano.

"When they left the restaurant around 9:45, the driver was going crazy ... He was burning every red light - about 30 of them. Finally he ended up crashing into a taxi because he was driving so dangerously," an X17 photographer tells X17online.

Rihanna was picked up by another chauffeured car and returned to her hotel. There were no injuries and police were not called to the scene.

"Rihanna didn't seem to be too worried about the accident. She had to wait a while inside the car before a second limo came to pick her up but when she got into the other car, she looked fine. She just moved quickly so the paps wouldn't get a shot of her and then that car sped away," according to the X17photographer.

Later that evening, Rihanna left her hotel to see the film "Madea Goes to Jail."
