Conrad Hilton, the 19-year-old hotel heir and younger brother of starlet Paris Hilton, was seriously injured Saturday, Aug. 23, when his speeding BMW careened out of control and smashed into a semi truck near Cathedral City, the California Highway Patrol reported.

Firefighters had to use the Jaws of Life to cut Hilton, a resident of Beverly Hills, out of his car. He was hospitalized at Desert Regional Medical Center with what were described as major injuries.

The CHP gave this account of the crash:

Hilton was driving his 2013 BMW east on I-10 about 12:20 p.m. at a high rate of speed when a park ranger tried to pull him over in the Beaumont area for speeding and passing on the right shoulder. The ranger lost sight of Hilton, however, near the split with the 60 freeway.

Meantime, several motorists reported to police dispatchers that Hilton’s vehicle was being driven recklessly.

When Hilton reached Date Palm Drive near Cathedral City, he tried to move to the right to change lanes, but he struck the left rear corner of a Volkswagen Beetle. The VW lost control, spinning into the center median. Hilton also lost control, striking the rear of a semi. His BMW came to rest on the right shoulder.

No decision had been made on criminal charges as of Tuesday, CHP Officer Stephanie Hamilton wrote in an email. Neither alcohol nor drugs was suspected to have been a factor in the collisions, Hamilton wrote.

Hilton has a valid driver’s license, she added.

No one else was reported injured.

The driver of the VW was identified as Phillip Singler, 70, of Palm Desert. The driver of the semi, a 2009 Freightliner, was identified as Davy Van, 31, of Westminster.
