Lindsay Lohan

My Brakes Failed!!!

6/10/2012 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0609_lindsay_lohan_tmz_carLindsay Lohan is now telling friends the brakes 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.

Considering her driving history, one of these days ... well, let's just say she needs a driver.

Look here Linds... YOU CAN'T FU(KING DRIVE B!TCH!!!! How many accidents with vehicles has the moron had in the last year? I'm no rocket scientist, but it doesn't take much to tell me she needs to walk or hire a driver. I'm over her ignorance.

Lohans own words she was driving. Lohan again is tripping over her own lies and got caught. This man has been driving in the left lane. No way Lohan was cut off. Simply look at the car.

That BS not working. Now it's her rental porsche's bad breaks that caused the wreck. No one is going to buy that one either.

why doesn't she just admit she wasn't paying attention and slammed into the back of the truck. This girl is not capable of admitting fault or taking responsibility for any of her actions.

she doesn't realize even if they changed the brake pads yeasterday, it has nothing to do with six piston calipers system or failing. I say again "liar liar crotch on fire".

If i ever need the brakes quick in a car, I would hope i was in something like a Porsche. Probably one of the best brake systems you could have in a car.

TMZ should include "How many seconds did it take you to come to your conclusion?" on every Lindsay travesty and any other obvious celebrity. And then offer options like *less than 5 seconds, *less than a 1000th of a second and *my LAPTOP automatically clicked NO. On this "You buying it?" my LAPTOP automatically clicked "No."

Geez, can't this twit ever take responsibility for ANYTHING? Just pay for the repairs and go on with your life, Lindsay. You look like a complete fool with all these stupid stories you come up with.

TMZ still riding this Lohan Pony hard and fast.........
Got their best writer on it to....the one who won the spelling bee.


MOVE OVER SCEPTICAL....You need to make room for this old Hillbilly in your boat cause this whole scenario stinks to high heaven !!! of Lohan Inc production......The only truth to come out so far is the Truck Driver who was minding his on business doing his normal job when the Lohan Inc buzz saw rammed into him.....
I'm thinking that the Liz and Dick Con movie owned and being produced by Lohan Inc and Lifetime is not beinging in the results in media coverage as they thought..Its being universally panned. and turning into a nightmare so this is just the thing Lifetime and Larry Thompson needs to cover their asses when they pull the plug on this disaster ...
All thanks to Lindsay for partying away till dawn at the CM and they having to go get her ass out of bed and escort it back to the set...that was why the Caddy there behind her...the rest is all panic cover up ...by Lindsay , by Gavin and by that driver who was sent to get her..
Hell if I was the moneyman I would say NO More and run for the hills cause to cover this sthyt pile up is going cost to much...What ever Lohan Incs got on you ain't worth this much grief...

If her brakes failed, it's because they were replaced with her movie career.
