Palm Springs, CA, United States (4E) – Paris Hilton’s younger brother Conrad, 20 was reportedly involved in a car accident on Saturday when he hit two cars while speeding on his 2013 BMW near Palm Springs, California.
Although he had to be removed from his car using the “jaws of life,” (hydraulic tools used to pry open vehicles involved in accidents when a victim may be trapped) Hilton, according to TMZ, merely sustained minor injuries.
Reports say Hilton was neither on drugs nor alcohol.
The Desert Sun newspaper reports that according to the California Highway Patrol officers, Hilton was driving his BMW on Interstate 10 when he attempted to change lanes. He then hit a Volkswagen Beetle, lost control of his car and hit the rear of a tractor trailer before “coming to a stop on the side of the road.”
Phillip Singler, who was driving the Volkswagen, described the incident as “terrifying.” “It was scary. I was knocked across the freeway,” he recalled.
Before the accident, Hilton was said to be driving recklessly and was reported to 911 by some drivers.
This isn’t Hilton’s first encounter with police. In 2011, he reportedly crashed into two parked cars in Los Angeles and the following year, he was arrested for being high on marijuana, a violation of the terms of his probation from a previous marijuana arrest.
The young Hilton was reportedly brought to Desert Regional Medical Center. His current condition is still unknown.
