Yikes! Conrad is lucky to be alive after allegedly driving erratically and going as fast as 200 MPH on a Palm Springs, Calif. freeway. Here’s what we know.
Conrad Hilton, the brother of Paris Hilton, is one lucky young man. After allegedly driving way over the speed limit and colliding with two other vehicles on the freeway, the 19-year-old heir surprisingly walked away with extremely minor injuries.
Paris Hilton’s Brother In Car Crash: Conrad Recovering After 200 MPH Accident
Conrad was driving his black BMW on the shoulder of a Palm Springs-area freeway on Aug. 23, allegedly going so fast that at least two witnesses stopped to call the police, according to 911 tapes obtained by TMZ.
Conrad reportedly changed lanes, hit a Volkswagen and then crashed into a trailer tractor, the UK’s Daily Mail reports. The collision was so horrific that responders had to use the jaws of life to remove Conrad from his car, according to TMZ.
Surprisingly, Conrad manged to cheat death, walking away from the wreckage with a fractured hand and some minor cuts and bruises — but no life-threatening injuries.
Conrad Hilton Crash: No Drugs Or Alcohol Found
Conrad’s crash is still under investigation but the California Highway Patrol told TMZ that his out-of-control driving led him clip the back of the Volkswagen and collide with the trailer tractor as he tried to switch lanes.
It’s been reported that drugs and alcohol did not play a role in the accident.
This isn’t Conrad’s first auto crash. The teen also crashed his car into a parked vehicle as he allegedly drove recklessly down a residential street in Brentwood, Calif. in 2011.
