Actress Lindsay Lohan was involved in a car accident last Friday near Santa Monica, California, while reportedly driving a rented Porsche, with her assistant in the passenger seat, on the Pacific Coast Highway.
Lohan reportedly rear-ended a truck, causing massive damage to the $80,000 Porsche. The damage to the truck is not known.
She checked into a local hospital and told police that she wasn’t driving the car at the time of the car accident, and that the driver was her assistant.
However, Lohan’s assistant later told police the actress was, in fact, the driver.
The driver, “James,” of the truck that she crashed into was quick to talk to the media about the car crash. James claims that Lohan’s camp tried to bribe him in order to keep quiet about the incident and what he claims was Lohan’s attempt to flee the scene.
James told TMZ.com that Lohan’s assistant offered to “go to the bank” to withdraw cash in order to pay him off, but he had already dialed 911.
Lohan’s rep denied the driver’s bribery allegations in a statement on Sunday: “It seems to me once he realized he wasn’t going to get anything from Lindsay he decided to get cash by telling tales to the tabloids. I hope he got whatever money he was looking for. Personally, all I care about is that Lindsay and [her assistant] Gavin are okay.”
Several eyewitnesses at the scene told TMZ.com that after the crash Lindsay and her assistant both got out of the car on the passenger side, which means Lindsay may or may not have been driving.
if Lohan was driving, and told the police that she was not, then she may be back in legal hot water and violated her probation. You cannot lie to a police officer when giving an accident report.
The driver of the truck would be smart to contact an experienced accident lawyer who can help him get compensation for his injuries and the damage to his vehicle
