California Highway Patrol officers told The Desert Sun that Hilton, 19, was driving his BMW on Interstate 10 just before 12:30 p.m. when he attempted to change lanes and clipped the back of a Volkswagen Beetle. From there, he apparently hit a tractor trailer before "coming to a stop on the side of the road," the paper reports.

Per The Desert Sun, investigators have determined that drugs and alcohol were not a factor in the accident. Officer Stephanie Hamilton said, however, that Hilton had been speeding, and that "several motorists called him in for reckless driving."
