Justin Bieber just got rear-ended ... and it looks like a case of quien es mas macho.

Conrad Hilton, the younger brother of Paris Hilton, was involved in a major car crash over the weekend ... but TMZ has learned he emerged without any major injuries.
According to the California Highway Patrol, Hilton was driving in Palm Springs Saturday afternoon when he clipped the back of another car while trying to change lanes. CHP says his car then hit the rear of a tractor trailer before coming to a rest on the side of the road.
Police say paramedics had to use the ol' jaws of life to free Hilton from his car. As bad as that sounds, ours sources say Hilton suffered a fracture in his hand, a few cuts and bruises, but no major injuries.
According to the CHP, drugs and alcohol were not a factor, but Hilton was observed to be speeding before the crash. Police say before the crash, another driver called 911 to report Hilton's reckless driving and an officer tried to pull Hilton over, but lost sight of him.
This isn't Hilton's first major crash. Back in 2011, he smashed his car into a parked car while speeding down a residential street in Brentwood.
Million Dollar Shopping Spree
For 3 Cars!
8/23/2014 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Petra Ecclestone just dropped a million bucks on 3 cars parked in the driveway of her massive L.A. mansion ... which seems odd for someone who's selling the place and moving to England, right?
Petra -- whose dad Bernie is a billionaire Formula One honcho and her hubby James Stunt who is also a billionaire -- is now the proud owner of a $600K Lamborghini Aventador convertible ... a $422K Rolls Royce Phantom ... and a Range Rover Autobiography that goes for $190K.
Celeb consultant Richie Rich hand delivered the wheels from Exotic Euro Cars.
TMZ broke the story ... Petra went to 5 L.A. realtors and told them she wanted to sell the crib for $110 million -- making it the biggest sale in L.A. history -- because she was going back to the UK.
But we're told she's now decided the estate is worth $150 million, so until she gets it she's staying put.

Almost Nails Disabled Woman
8/22/2014 9:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber took his Can-Am Spyder into Bev Hills Thursday ... and when traffic got too congested for his taste, he maneuvered it onto the sidewalk where he rode illegally ... almost hitting someone.
Watch the video closely ... you'll see Bieber comes off the sidewalk at an intersection, and comes close to creaming an elderly woman with a walker.
He clearly doesn't care ... because seconds later he's rocking out to music as he waits at a light.
BTW ... Bieber's on probation for the egg throwing incident, which means he's not allowed to violate any laws. Lucky for him ... no cops in sight.
The Great Parking Spot Challenge
8/20/2014 2:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
For the average driver, pulling out of a semi-tight parking spot is nothing exciting, but when it's Kylie Jenner (aka The World's Worst Driver) it makes for riveting video.
Jenner and a friend were leaving Urth Cafe in West Hollywood Tuesday, when she retrieved her infamous Range Rover from the valet ... which was left parked between two cars ... a Mercedes SUV and a Lamborghini.
Given Kylie's history of accidents, more accidents, and speeding ... it made for a very tense situation.
She's a LIAR
Claims Other Driver In Crash
8/18/2014 9:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kylie Jenner is full of BS by claiming she was rear-ended by a reckless driver Thursday ... because the other driver says she not only caused the crash but copped an attitude.
As we first reported ... the 17-year-old was driving her brand new Range Rover when -- according to her -- a woman swerved into her lane and rear-ended her.
But the woman's lawyer says what REALLY happened is that Kylie made an illegal U-ey with no warning and crashed into oncoming traffic.
The accident was so bad ... the lawyer -- Gary Daglian -- says his client's passenger ended up in the hospital.
And the lawyer goes on ... claiming Kylie was "aggressive" and tried to strong-arm his client into settling up for cash and NOT calling any cops or insurance companies. His client told Kylie to pound sand.

On a Roll
Another Car Crash
8/15/2014 11:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kylie Jenner is now eligible to qualify for a demolition derby ... because she was just in yet another car crash ... TMZ has learned.
We're told the latest crash -- which occurred Thursday night as she was driving home from dinner -- resulted in thousands of dollars in damage to her brand new Range Rover.
Here's Kylie's story. She was driving home from Katsuya in Glendale when a woman in another car got cut off. She says the woman swerved into her lane and rear ended her.
The scenario is what Kylie told her parents ... so take it for what it's worth.
She has a rich, short driving history. The 17-year-old caused a multi-car crash a year ago ... 18 days after she got her license. She messed up her Mercedes SUV.
Kylie also got ticketed in January ... we're told it was for speeding.
Last month Kylie was pulled over and ticketed for tinted windows and driving with a teenager ... she's too young to have a minor alone in the car.
If you see Kylie on the road ... a sharp right onto a side street is advisable.
