SAN ANDREAS, Calif. (AP) — Robert Conrad, who starred in the TV series "Baa Baa Black Sheep" and "The Wild Wild West," was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol after a head-on crash with another car, the California Highway Patrol said.

Conrad crashed while driving west on Highway 4 in the Sierra foothills of Northern California in a 1995 Jaguar about 7:15 p.m. Monday, police said.

The driver of the other vehicle, Kevin Burnett, 26, suffered multiple fractures to his left leg, Duquesnel said.

Conrad was transported by helicopter to a Modesto hospital, about 60 miles southwest of the accident.

"I understand that he's stable," said Donna Gaba, who works for Conrad's agent, David Shapira.

Burnett was taken to another Modesto hospital, where he underwent surgery Tuesday and also was in stable condition, hospital officials said.

Conrad has appeared in dozens of TV shows and movies, most prominently as James T. West in the '60s series "The Wild Wild West" and fighter pilot squad commander "Pappy" Boyington in the '70s series "Baa Baa Black Sheep."

Police list Conrad's age at 74. Television and film reference guides report the actor is 68.
