Paris Hilton's younger brother Conrad Hilton was in a serious car crash last weekend, after reportedly driving recklessly.

The California Highway Patrol told TMZ that Hilton, 19, clipped another car Saturday afternoon in Palm Springs while trying to change lanes. His car then hit the rear of a big rig before coming to a stop on the side of the road.

Paramedics reportedly had to use the Jaws of Life to pull Hilton from his car. TMZ reports he only suffered a fractured hand and a few cuts and bruises. The New York Post reported Hilton was taken to Desert Regional Medical Center.

The CHP told the website drugs and alcohol weren't a factor. Another driver called 911 to report Hilton was speeding and driving recklessly. The Post said a CHP helicopter witnessed the crash. TMZ reported that a responding officer tried pulling the car over, but lost sight of Hilton.

I'm guessing he wasn't driving a used Pinto.

Hilton apparently didn't learn his lesson from 2011, when he crashed into a parked car in Brentwood while speeding down a residential street.
