Lindsay Lohan crashed her Porsche on Friday into the back of an truck and claims the driver cut her off. Now the driver claims that Lindsay’s people tried to bribe him to make the accident go away and Lindsay jumped out of her car and into another car associated with her Liz & Dick film crew, but he stopped Ms. Lohan as she tried to flee. Lindsay now says the driver is lying. Who do you believe?
The guy driving the giant truck that got rear ended by Lindsay Lohan Friday tells TMZ … LiLo was trying to flee the scene and when he tried to stop her … her people tried to buy his silence.
Lindsay was driving on the PCH yesterday when she collided with a semi-truck driven by James (we’re leaving out his last name). Lohan was trailed by a Cadillac Escalade (which James refers to as a limousine) … driving by someone connected with her Lifetime movie.
James tells TMZ after the accident, he called 911 as Lindsay and her male assistant got out of the Porsche and into the Escalade. James says the assistant picked up a pink bag, “filled it up with something” and then put clothes on top of it.
James claims the driver of the Escalade was trying to keep him away from the SUV. James says he wanted to exchange info with Lindsay (whom he did not recognize) but it was apparent to him she was about to flee the scene.
James says the Escalade driver offered him money, saying they could “go to the bank” and withdraw some cash.
James says the Escalade driver and Lindsay’s assistant put on a full court press: “Him and the guy took me across the street and told me this was some kind of famous person and they didn’t want to be in the media. But I’d already called 911 because they were trying to get away from the scene. But they packed a bag and then the limousine driver told me, ‘Don’t mention the bag to the cops.'”
Now sources claim that Lindsay says her brakes didn’t work when she tried to brake as the truck came in front of her.
Lindsay Lohan is now telling friends the breaks on her rented Porsche DIDN’T WORK and that’s why she slammed into the back of an 18-wheeler … TMZ has learned.
As TMZ first reported, in the moments following the accident, Lindsay claimed the semi-truck cut her off … and that is what caused the accident. The driver of the truck told TMZ that was not the case and has witnesses to back up his tale.
According to our sources, Lindsay is sticking with the “truck cut me off!!!” story, but with a twist … she claims she slammed on the brakes … but nothing. And get this … somehow Lindsay says she was told the brakes on the rental were replaced two days before the crash.
Lindsay is telling people she feels lucky to be alive, having only suffered cuts and bruises … no serious injuries.
