Lindsay Lohan Crash

Truck Driver Claims

Bribe Offered for Silence

EXCLUSIVE

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) ... driven 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.'"

Steve Honig, Lindsay's rep, tells TMZ, "Lindsay is cooperating fully with law enforcement. She has answered all their questions and provided them with everything they have asked for."

Please, for her safety and that of others, yank this woman's driver's license for several years and return it only after several clean urine tests...she has enough money to take taxis and/or have drivers...

Honestly on her behalf, this is typical bipolar behavior, she self medicates, people can do nothing to stop her when she's in the mania phase...If this girl does not get help for her disorder the outcome is not going to be good!

Lifetime is going to go all out trying to spin this to save face and to no avail. Shut down the movie and cut your losses now. It's only going to get worse.


Way to go Lohan, you just keep showing Hollywood directors and producers why they won't even consider you let alone hire you.

They are probally sending sympathy cards to Lifetime right now.

Typical Lindsay behavior. I bet anything she was hung over from the night before and the person in the Escalade had to go to her house and get her out of bed for the shoot, then escort her to the set to make sure she came in.

Wonder what was in the pink bag?

This guy is full of it, try to be objective and THINK. The cops said both the truck drivers and Lindsays version of the accident are consistent. So, there was a SUV following them, after the accident Lindsay and passenger got her stuff together, got out of the porsche and sat in the SUV. What did he want her to do? sit in a wrecked car? Of course they were'nt fleeing the scene, they were getting out of immediate danger, Lindsays assistant was injured and taken away by ambulance.


This is another Hookah moron wanting his 15 mins and some money.

Put this "star" (cough cough) in jail. She is a menace on the roads. She can't drive herself across the street without ****ing up. I knew she was lying!

She'll never get hired again. This was the only job she could get and she's made a fiasco of it - not mention implicating the network in a possible drug buy and hit-and-run/cover up attempt. This was her ONE CHANCE to go to work, do a good job, and stay out of trouble.

Lohan already burned damn near 10 years of primetime career she will never get back. This will probally concreate the fact she is still not worth it. Great move on her re-starting her career.


Lohan was back to partying the day she left court. Good move there Sautner. Lohan doesn't care. No drug or alcohol testing of anykind. Basically it was simply do what you want just don't get caught.


Lohan is going to end up killing somebody.

Good riddance!    

Wow! I just hope this guy gets a quick clue about the hurricane force crapstorm of smear that is headed his way now that the Lowhan enablers have circled their wagons to protect their prized village idiot again. It sounds lie the 911 tapes will help protect him to some degree, if not burn her to the ground, and they are going to be awesome to listen to if they get released.

Mark my words, he will be targeted and smeared to an unbelievable level never seen by her previous victims before.
