Lindsay Lohan hospitalized after car crash, police say she rear ended truck
Lindsay Lohan was rushed to the emergency room after getting into a bad car accident in Los Angeles on Friday, June 8.
The 25-year-old actress was driving her black Porsche on the Pacific Coast Highway just before noon and hit the back of an 6-wheeler truck that was driving in the same direction, a police spokesperson told OnTheRedCarpet.com, adding that she and the truck driver were not impaired at the time. Officials are still investigating the incident.
The actress was transported to a hospital after citing pain. There is no word on her condition, but doctors are performing tests. The police spokesperson told OnTheRedCarpet.com a male passenger who rode with Lohan suffered a minor injury, while the driver of the truck was unharmed, he said.
The Porsche is totaled, with a passenger window shattered, the airbag deployed and the bumper hanging from the front of the sports car.
Lohan is in the middle of filming the Lifetime biopic "Liz & Dick," where she portrays Elizabeth Taylor, opposite "GCB" actor Grant Bowler, who stars as Richard Burton.
The Lifetime Original Movie will be based on the story of Taylor's torrid romance with actor Richard Burton and started principal photography in Los Angeles on Monday, June 4 . It is slated for release later this year. It is unclear whether Lohan's current condition will affect the film's release.
Lohan, who rose to fame a child star and became more famous with films such as "Mean Girls" has been trying to restart her acting career since she was convicted of drunk driving and cocaine possession in 2007. She has served five stints in jail since then after violating her probation, including by being charged with misdemeanor theft in a case involving a missing necklace.
On March 29, a judge ruled that the actress has fulfilled all her probation requirements.
UPDATE: Lindsay Lohan was released from the hospital and returned to work on the set of "Liz & Dick," her rep told OnTheRedCarpet.com. Also, police officials say the truck Lohan hit was a 6-wheeler, not an 18-wheeler. This story has been updated with the correction.
