Kylie Jenner has crashed her new US$125,000 (NZD$160,813.12) car just weeks after her 16th birthday.

Kim Kardashian's half-sister only got her California drivers' licence when she turned 16 on August 10 and enjoyed a lavish Sweet 16 party the following weekend.

Kylie has been driving the vehicle for less than a month, but was involved in a three-car collision on Wednesday.

The teenager was behind the wheel of her brand new Mercedes-Benz SUV, which she received for her birthday, when she slammed into the back of a Toyota in the Los Angeles suburb of Calabasas.

The Toyota then hit into the rear of a Volkswagen SUV, which suffered bumper damage.

The vehicle Kylie hit had significant damage and photographs from the crash have appeared on TMZ, showing the Toyota's back bumper stuck in Kylie's car's front grill.

According to witnesses, Kylie apologised for the smash and exchanged details with the other drivers before leaving. Police then arrived on the scene a short time later.

Kylie was first seen behind the wheel of her impressive car at her Sweet 16 party on August 17.

The teenager - who has been romantically linked to Will Smith's son Jaden - was so thrilled with her gift, she even took the vehicle for its own "spa day" earlier this month.
