Paris Hilton and Boyfriend in Car Crash
"Everyone is safe and sound," the heiress's rep tells PEOPLE
Paris Hilton and her beau, Greek shipping heir Stavros Niarchos, riding with at least two passengers in a silver Bentley, were involved in a minor car accident as they left a Hollywood nightclub in the early hours of Wednesday, according to reports.
“It was just a fender bender,” Hilton’s rep tells PEOPLE. “Everyone is safe and sound.”
As captured on videotape and aired on TV and the Internet, the Bentley – with Niarchos at the wheel – drove into the back of a parked commercial truck, scratching the hood of the expensive auto.
Referring to the Hilton party, Los Angeles police Officer Michael Lopez told the Associated Press: “They decided to leave the scene because the paparazzi was there.”
According to the video, Hilton later blows a kiss to two officers on the scene and says, “We love the police.”
“There’s an administrative investigation going on just to see if there was a violation of our procedures,” Los Angeles Police Department officer Martha Garcia tells PEOPLE, adding that no one in the Bentley received a ticket.
