LINDSAY LOHAN LIED TO THE COPS!
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Lindsay Lohan lied to cops Friday by telling them she was NOT driving the Porsche that slammed into a truck on the Pacific Coast Highway, and as a result she could be prosecuted and her probation could be revoked.
Our sources say, when Lindsay was in the hospital getting checked out after the accident, cops from the Santa Monica Police Dept. paid a visit. Lindsay told police she was a passenger in the Porsche and her assistant was driving. But the lie didn't stick because later Lindsay's assistant told police Lindsay was behind the wheel.
We're told police are writing up a report that will include Lindsay's lie. It's a crime to provide false info to a police officer. In addition, lying to police could trigger a probation violation in her shoplifting case, which means she faces the possibility of jail on 2 fronts.
Several eyewitnesses at the scene tell TMZ, after the crash Lindsay and her assistant both got out of the car on the passenger side, which means Lindsay had to climb over the console. It appears Lindsay had concocted the lie almost immediately after impact.
Wow I bet the producers of Liz and Dick are feeling really really stupid right about now.
she was probably trying to fly around someone and ran into him as he was also pulling into the lane. but there MUST be a witness that can give an accurate account of what happened. someone had to between her and the semi.
Of course, haven't we heard this story a million times already?
Truck Driver Is A LIAR!!!
Lindsay Lohan is calling BS on the truck driver’s allegation of bribery ... and everything else he said about the aftermath of their accident is a flat out lie ... sources close to Lohan tell TMZ.
As TMZ previously reported, James -- the guy driving the 18-wheeler Lindsay crashed into on Friday -- told TMZ her people tried to offer him money to keep quiet. He also claimed Lindsay and her people took a mysterious bag out of her Porsche and told James not to mention it to police.
According to our sources, Lindsay says the whole tale is made up -- there was no bribe attempt and no bag removed the car.
We're told Lindsay says the whole story is fabricated and she is (once again) just chalking it up to someone out to make a buck off her.
Lindsay Lohan blames a mechanical fault for her terrifying car crash on Friday, according to a new report.
The “Mean Girls” actress was treated in hospital for minor injuries after her hired Porsche collided with a truck on the Pacific Coast Highway in Los Angeles.
The driver of the 18-wheeler trailer truck, identified only as James, told TMZ.com the accident happened after Lohan swerved into the lane he was occupying and crashed into his vehicle from behind.
Now a pal of the shaken actress has revealed Lohan slammed on the brakes when she realized a collision was imminent, but the Porsche failed to slow down and she was powerless to prevent the collision.
But James is still adamant the actress was at fault, telling TMZ, “I was already in that lane. The witnesses that came and left me their information said this woman was flying on the freeway… She came over and hit the back of the truck. There’s even a video… of this whole incident. I was going about 40 miles an hour… (and) I felt a nice-size jolt.”
Lohan, who totaled the Porsche in the crash, is co-operating with police, according to her spokesman Steve Honig.
He says, “She has answered all their questions and provided them with everything they have asked for.”
Los Angeles, June 12 — Actor Lindsay Lohan has been sued for her involvement in a car accident last week.
The troubled actress was travelling on the Pacific Coast Highway near Los Angeles when her Porsche crashed into an 18-wheel truck June 8. The driver of the truck, James, has hired a lawyer and sued the 25-year-old actress, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
James accused that Lohan's people tried to give him money on the spot to dismiss the case. In defence, Lohan claimed James was responsible for the crash, telling friends that the truck had cut her off.
However, she has since said the brakes were not working properly on her rented car.
"Lindsay is sticking with the 'truck cut me off' story, but with a twist, she claims she slammed on the brakes, but nothing," femalefirst.co.uk quoted a source as saying.
Following the crash, Lohan was taken to hospital and after being given the all clear, she returned to work to carry on filming movie "Liz & Dick".
