Lindsay Lohan may have gotten another lucky break.
The actress crashed into an 18-wheeler on the PCH last week and on top of lying to cops about being the person driving, an open container of alcohol was found at the scene!
Fortunately, she wasn't under the influence at the time and passed a field sobriety test with flying colors. Once taken to the hospital for treatment, the popo determined that the Liz & Dick actress did not need a blood test to double check her BAC. A friend close to the star explains:
"Lindsay was given a portable breathalizer test along with several other field sobriety tests and she passed them all. She did everything that was asked of her and cooperated fully. This is why the cops didn't request a blood sample from Lindsay, as they concluded that she wasn't under the influence and didn't need to be given a blood test. Lindsay was shaken up obviously about the accident, but that is to be expected. The cops told her that she was lucky to be alive, and her seat belt absolutely saved her life."
At least she did one thing right and decided to click it before she got a ticket.
While we heard the water bottle of booze was found in her trunk, Sergeant Richard Lewis of the Santa Monica PD says otherwise. He told various sources that "no container was retrieved from the vehicle," but rather "found in the debris by the side of the road."
Even better! That means LiLo and her assistant managed to toss it out the window as they were switching seats. LOL!
Regardless of what really went down with that water bottle, it sounds like cops are giving her the benefit of the doubt and she'll only have to answer for lying about driving…if she doesn't successfully avoid that charge too.
