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!
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!
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!
