Lohan, passenger escape unhurt after her Porsche hits dump truck
LOS ANGELES - Actress Lindsay Lohan escaped injury Friday when her Porsche collided with a dump truck.
Police said Lohan was driving wth an unidentified male passenger on the Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica on her way to the set of her latest movie project.
The actress and her passenger were taken to the hospital and released shortly after. Neither Lohan nor the driver of the truck were under the influence of drugs or alcohol, police said.
“Lindsay was involved in an automobile accident today on her way to the set... she is fine and was released less than two hours later and is already headed back to the set to resume work,” said publicist Steve Honig.
Celebrity news Web site TMZ posted pictures of Lohan’s Porsche showing a crushed front end and smashed windows.
Lohan, 26, has had a string of legal and personal troubles since 2007, including stints in jail, rehab and court. She was released in March from almost five years of formal probation stemming from a 2007 drunken driving and cocaine possession arrest.
The actress is currently playing the late screen legend Elizabeth Taylor for a Lifetime TV movie “Liz & Dick,” based on Taylor’s love affair with actor Richard Burton.
