Lindsay Lohan Claims Her Brakes Failed Before PCH Accident With 18-Wheeler!

Although we're just relieved that there were no serious injuries, it doesn't sound we'll be getting a straight answer as to what exactly caused Lindsay Lohan's car accident with an 18-wheeler on the PCH this past Friday!

What we do know is this:

The actress was on the way to film Liz & Dick with her assistant in a rented Porsche when she slammed into the back of the truck. They were taken to the hospital and treated more minor cuts and bruises.

While it was initially reported that LiLo wasn't even driving, she later confirmed that she was, and that the accident happened when the truck driver cut her off, a claim he has since denied, and has witnesses to back him up!

Furthermore, he later asserted that the actress' team attempted to bribe him, and even witnessed them trying to hid a "mysterious bag" from him while waiting for the cops!

CRAZY!

Well, in today's news, Lindsay's rep, Steve Honig, says in response to the trucker's allegations:

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 Gavin are OK.

Wow! Pretty no-nonsense about all of that, huh?

Meanwhile, LiLo herself has now added a new aspect to her tale, and is apparently telling friends that while she was definitely cut off, the REAL cause of the accident was that the brakes on her rented car failed her, and she couldn't stop in time!

Even worse? She claims she was informed before taking the car that its brakes had only just been replaced two days before!

Yeesh!

Seems like something you might want to tell authorities immediately after totaling your ride, right?

Then again, given her history on the road, we would have stopped getting behind the wheel and hired a personal driver a looooong time ago!

Can U imagine what her car insurance premium is?! Eek!

    Poor girl - it must be hard trying to remember a lifetime of lies.



  2. 2

    Don't believe her for a second! If she was completely in the right, the entire story would have surfaced immediately,and not in bit and pieces after her credibility is questioned. Amazing how of all of the people on the PCH, only her car had the one with the faulty brakes! Once the police and forensics are finished going over the car with a fine toothed comb, and find that there was nothing wrong with the brake, let see what her next story will be. And new brakes don't necessarily mean a NEW brake system. If they in fact did say that, its very possible that they also could have meant that the car got new brake pads which is routine maintenance on any car!

    Re: Meggie246524 – No kidding. It is like she can't help herself. I have read that an addicts first impulse is to lie. Certainly true with Lindsay.



  4. 4

    I believe her, usually rental car places get replacement parts for they're cars from the local junkyard, so it's hardly implausible that the brakes were defective and wore out on Lindsay.

    It would be so much easier if she just admitted that she fucked up but on the same note if she did she knows people would take her down for it. She can never win either way.

    This HoHan broad is sick crazy to the max…always lying, always 'drama'…and NEVER her fault. Total Nut Case. WHY is HollyWood enabling her … ? They should not give her any roles, let her die into oblivion…won't have to worry about insurance premiums with a stand-up actress…she just is not worth the hassle…let her waste all her money, and wind up in low-budget porn, or wind up working in a laundrette like that Plato chick…Just say'n. HoHan is a total waste of skin…even Gerard Butler has stopped calling her….

    anyone who hires her is buying her drugs and will be responsible for killing someone. she's already dead. thank the courts and high paid lawyers. how is she walking the street. mom needs her money too.

    Steve Honig is a professional liar! Period. The end. One has to wonder how some of these Hollywood sycophants can sleep at night.

    Re: elliot55 – The same way the losers who come into every Lindsay post calling her HoHan and wishing death on her can sleep at night

    Honigs response makes no sense at all, considering how Lindsays people are the ones who offered the truck driver money. He hasn't made a dime off of his side of the story, he was just defending himself. Honig & Lindsay would like people to believe EVERYONE is out to get her, which is complete BS. There are plenty of witnesses that back up every word of the truck drivers story. There are also people who saw her driving at an excessive speed before the accident happened. None of the witnesses knew who she was when they gave their statements, so no one is out to get her. From what I understand, the Porsche was brand new, so the likeliness of the brakes failing or it just having new brakes put on it is pretty slim. Wonder what her story is going to be once these claims are also proven to be false? First she wasn't driving, then when it came out that people saw a woman driving, she admitted she was. Then the truck cut her off, when it came out that there was no way that could have happened, she said her brakes failed. How anyone can believe a word out of her mouth is beyond me.

    2 scenerios are possible, both involve speeding. 1st is the Porche had a maual transmission and Lindsay mashed on the clutch pedal instead of the brake. 2nd is an auto trans & she did hit the brake, but with ABS the tires will NOT stop and squeal. They will slow the car down ASAP. I vote for scenerio 2 as I don't see her capable of driving a stick shift.

    Re: bobo99 – You're nothing but a brain-dead moron.

    Re: ickynicky – Offered him money? Yeah right! His story is obviously fake anyone with half a brain can see it, course you have no brain at all so I wouldn't expect you to comprehend that.



  14. 14

    Re: ickynicky – Oh really? Why would Lindsay's people tell the guy not to tell the police about the bag? They couldn't possibly be that stupid, Anyone with even a single-digit I.Q. can tell this guy is lying out of his ass for money.

    Re: vexer6 – "I believe her, usually rental car places get replacement parts for they're cars from the local junkyard, so it's hardly implausible that the brakes were defective and wore out on Lindsay." We're talking about a Porsche here, not a Chevy. I doubt that brakes for that car were from a junk yard, but on the off chance they were, there is no reason to assume that the brakes were defective. Lindsay Lohan does little else but lie, and seeing as how she's already changed her story a couple of times, chances are she's just making it up as she goes along. Hollywood needs to blacklist her so she can fade into obscurity. I'm actually rather tired of hearing about her because she's a loser idiot.



  16. 16

    vexer6 - we're supposed to believe they replace the brakes of a rental Porche with defective brakes from a junkyard car??? I doubt that, unless they want to go out of business fast.

    The guy has witnesses who said they saw her weaving in and out of traffic….her brakes must have failed fast. Also she was travelling behind and if she had to slam on her brakes she was following too close and/or going too fast. Neither of them have said anything about changing lanes so it doesn't appear he was trying to change lanes. So how does she get cut off and damage the right side of her car? I think she was going to fast and tried to change lanes and ran into him.

    Re: bobo99 – "anyone who hires her is buying her drugs and will be responsible for killing someone. she's already dead. thank the courts and high paid lawyers. how is she walking the street. mom needs her money too." Wow … you often makes those leaps? If Lohan is taking drugs, it's not the fault of the courts of the lawyers. She makes the choice to do the drugs if she does, in fact, do them. I don't believe she's an addict, I think she's a spoiled bitch with an entitlement mentality who does what she wants to do because the rules don't apply to her. And THAT is HER responsibility.

    AMAZING how its never her fault!! Wish we could all use that excuse. When are they finally going to take her drivers license away from this liar??



  19. 19

    Re: La Garse – I'm tired of hearing brain-dead morons like you open your big fat mouths when it's obvious you know nothing.



  20. 20

    Why didn't she die? please? even this accident was full of sketchy shit..when are they going to LOCK HER ASS UP. When she gets drugged up or drunk and hits a 4 year kid and kills him/her? Oh wait, shes a celebrity..she'll probably get off of that too. Ahh California, single handily being proven by Lindsay Lohan as the joke of a state it is.



  21. 21

    Re: vexer6 – Really? You believe her about the brakes? The first thing she said was that he cut her off - no mention of the brakes. Having a brake failure is a very scary thing, and surely it would have been the first thing she said if it were true.



  22. 22

    Re: vexer6 – excuse me….it is a porsche that was rented, highly doubt they used cheap parts!!!!



  23. 23

    Let's go through some of her normal excuses…..ummm these aren't my pants, even though I'm wearing them, so the drugs in them aren't mine either. Umm…the black man did it, yeah…it was him. I wasn't drinking booze, it was the tea! I was set up, I didn't steal anything, they are just trying to make money off of me. My passport was stolen, that's why I missed my court date. The people at the shelter were mean to me, and didn't like me, that's why I didn't do my community service there. She hit me, I didn't hit her, she's just trying to make money off of me. For once…can't this Klepto-Han actually take responsiblity???? And say hey yeah, I made a mistake….sorry. And move on instead of DENIAL, LIES, AND BLAMING EVERYONE ELSE, except looking in the mirror!

    I find it hard to believe Lindsay. The only thing she really knows how to do is lie! And that's exactly what she's doing! She needs to stop and let her PR people and lawyers handle things. It's only making it worse. I doubt the cops are going to do anymore. They're bought and paid for all the time! THis is no different than any other times that Lindsay has been arrested!

    Riiiight. Because a Porsche would totally have brake problems like that. It's only a kazillion dollar luxury vehicle. Ha!

    Porsche's brakes do not fail. Porsche should sue her tired old lying ass.

  28. 28

    Re: vexer6 – You have to consider that the driver of the truck does it for a living and is probably used to reckless drivers anxious to get around him. He had the vantage point of being able to see what was ahead, while druggie Lindz was probably preoccupied with her hair flying in her face.

    Re: NookiesWA – Why can't you die, you stupid b*tch?

    Re: La Garse – Your talking about a 75 thousand plus dollar Porsche. Those vehicles have more safety features then I can count. I have owned 10 plus cars. I have never had brakes that just failed. Thats a little far fetched. If your breaks are not working right, you will know before hand. So, No matter what its her fault. Just think about this. Lohan's reputation has been ruined threwout the years. How can you put anything past her. I do belive they tried to bribe the truck driver to keep it out the media. Common since. Remember Hollywood nuts can get away with anything. I wish california would just drop off in the pacific.

    Im surprised she did not use this old excuse.

    "My gas pedal got stuck and I could not stop" LOL

    This HoHan girl is a total waste of skin…WHY anyone would hire this HoHan girl is beyond me…HoHan oughta just leave HollyWood and move to Needle Park….This HoHan girl is a disgrace, and is evident of what becomes of chirldren actors in HolyWood…pretty soon it will be reading: R.I.P. - HoHan girl ! ;) There……..I feel better !

    Brakes failing in a $100K + car? HIGHLY unlikely.

    I'm sure the Manufacturer isn't too happy with Lindsanity tarnishing the image of Porche safety and quality sandards….

    Be-Atch will NEVER go away…in fact, because if your insubordination, Be-Atch has put a curse on you….good luck with those 'problems' you will soon be encountering…You DARE question the GREATNESS thai is, and was, and forever shall be, the Be-Atch ? ! Gurads ! ! ;)

    In this pic, HoHan looks high…so, she looks her normal self ! ;)



  39. 39

    With all the different responses on here believing or not believing her story,what are you trying to figure out? Her fault or not, she will not have a consequence. It's a worry to think that she will more than likely injure an innocent being and still her empty life of liesure goes on. Oh well, the Casey Anthony of B movies comes to mind. Bet major criminals wish they could manipulate like these two.

    Lindsay's soul is already dead. She's like one of those lost souls who keeps haunting the world, and can't seem to move on to the afterlife.

    Re: vexer6 – Lindsay, is that you?..



  42. 42

    Her first instinct is to lie. Even if it was her fault, she'd get a ticket. Big deal! So now we've heard the truck cut her off, brakes failed, I wasn't driving…wonder what she's trying to cover up….texting? something in her system?



  43. 43

    Brakes failed? Truck cut me off? Just let the police report be the answer. I watched the truck driver video. It will be interesting to see the outcome. Well, the Liz n Dick people were right to take out insurance. It has already paid off. Lindsey, you are a wreck!!



  44. 44

    Re: Evie – Typical, anytime someone defends Lindsay, people automatically assume it's either her or one of her family members.



  45. 45

    well if the brakes were replaced then they were brand new so no chance of failing there appears the only thing failing was the foot failed to apply the brakes why should anyone beleive anything she says ….does she understand noone actually beleives a word of it one day shes going to tell the truth and noone will even beleive it like the little girl who cried wolf .. IT WASNT MY FAULT mantra that hun mantra it noone beleives u..get some driving lessons while ur at it

    Lindsay Lohan is doing hard time, including lockdowns and solitary confinement.
    Lindsay Lohan is the latest celebrity to find herself so far on the wrong side of the law that she ends up in jail.



  48. 48

    I'm sorry, its time everyone stops believing her stories. I mean, I want to give the girl the benefit of the doubt…but how much drama has found her? It keeps piling up. And she always has a story to blame someone else, and the story always gets more and more elaborate. Such as this. I mean…at some point, something has to be her fault.

    "do the crime you do the time" apprently has no meaning now. she does this because she gets away with it. it's like the story the boy who cried wolf after so long no one believes you. she needs put in jai for what she has done regardless of she status or how much money she earns if it was any middle class person they would hae had time and find before now. rules should apply to all and Lindsay is getting away with too
    much she has to face up to reality and courts need to see sence and stop letting her off. it would maybe show her some responsibility and gratitude if she done the time she was supposed to do a long time ago. everyone makes mistakes and we learn from them but she isn't and not everyone does that's there fault and there choice but this isn't showing anyone what Justice is and the next generation Will wonder where we f*ckd up. yes people have done worse than what she is but it doesn't matter she does something wrong and against the law she has to stand up and face reality and take it like everyone else should! what good is it doing for her gettin away with everything? just going to make her do stupid stuff and break the law even more regardless of what is. sonner or later she will
    take it too far and it will be too late. she needs to grow up and face up!
