Little Sam, 4, and Lola Rose, 3, were in an SUV driven by their nanny on the world-famous -- and dangerous -- Pacific Coast Highway when the Sheen family vehicle was cut off by a Honda making a dangerous left turn.
Three other cars were involved, but only the driver of the Honda was injured.
A source told Us Magazine, "It could have been worse. They were protected by being in their car seats."
No arrests have been made and Richards and Sheen's children are fine.
The driver of the Honda was taken to an area hospital and will likely be cited for failure to yield.
The Pacific Coast Highway is known for its many blind spots and hairpin turns, as well as breathtaking vistas that some say distract drivers from concentrating on the road.
Denise Richards is known for taking her clothes off and really bad acting. Charlie Sheen is known for getting away with anything and everything because he has a hit TV show.
Neither Charlie Sheen nor Denise Richards issued a statement on the accident.
