New York: Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi and a fellow ‘Jersey Shore’ cast member have been involved in a minor traffic accident in Italy.

The popular MTV reality show is filming its fourth season in Florence.

The network 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, 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.

Photos posted on celebrity gossip website TMZ.com show Polizzi and co-star Deena Nicole Cortese, apparently uninjured, sitting on the sidewalk after the crash.

The show`s first and third season are set in Seaside Heights, N.J. The second season sent the cast to Miami.
