Kylie Jenner Crashes Benz Days After Sweet SixteenBy: Courtney Wills - September 2, 2013
Kylie Jenner, the youngest Jenner daughter to star on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, instigated a three-car collision last Wednesday in Calabasas. The wreck came just 18 days after Jenner received her driver’s license on her 16th birthday.
On August 28, Jenner was cruising around the California home of the stars when she accidentally hit a Toyota in the rear end, causing that vehicle to hit another SUV in the back.
The younger sister to Kim Kardashian was able to officially drive her new wheels alone just weeks before the crash. The G-Class Mercedes-Benz SUV Jenner was driving set her parents back an estimated $125,000.
Kylie tweeted pictures of her early birthday present on May 16, just before she took it to a Long Beach body shop for custom detailing, and also tweeted this, just days before her accident:
Kylie reportedly made the best of the situation, however, keeping calm and acting like a mature adult. An eyewitness told TMZ that the 16-year-old hopped out of her vehicle instantly, asking everyone if they were okay and apologizing profusely. She also exchanged necessary insurance information with everyone involved before she left the scene. Police arrived several minutes later.
The good news is, no one was injured in the collision, and Jenner reportedly left her house the next morning in a (yep, you guessed it)….new Mercedes.
