Conrad Hilton allegedly crashed into several police cars.
Conrad Hilton, the teenage brother of actress and socialite Paris Hilton, was involved in a car accident in Los Angeles over the weekend.
According to police reports, the car accident occurred at approximately 12:50 a.m. on Saturday as 17-year-old Hilton was driving his car in the Brentwood area. A surveillance video shows Hilton barreling down a street and subsequently crashing into two parked cars.
The Los Angeles Police Department stated that Hilton got out of his car and exchanged information with the owner of one of the vehicles and a witness before leaving the scene. Since no injuries were reported as a result of the car accident, the police declined to pursue the matter further. Hilton left his mangled car at the scene of the accident and it was later towed away.
According to witnesses, Conrad Hilton had been spotted earlier that evening at the Key Club in nearby West Hollywood. There are no reports as to whether Hilton had been drinking at the club or was intoxicated at the time of the accident.
Fortunately, no one was injured as a result of the car accident. Had Conrad Hilton struck another driver, causing serious injury or even death, he would have likely faced a substantial personal injury lawsuit for his actions. Under California law, victims of car accidents have the right to sue a negligent driver if they were hurt as a result of someone else’s carelessness. The families of innocent motorists who are killed by drunk or reckless drivers are also entitled to seek a wrongful death claim against the person who ended their loved one’s life.
