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.

People can see exactly what TMZ are doing, invent another 'source', create another BS story and wait for the hits. LMAO TMZ you are so predictable.

Sure, the brakes on a Porche rental do not work. No, the breaks on a hooptie that needs a person to use their feet to stop it and yell at pedestrians they can't stop has faulty brakes. Lindsay sounds like a compulsive liar.

BULLCRAP!! Not in a $100,000 plus supercar with six piston calipers that will stop this car on a dime. IT'S CALLED BEING THE BIGGEST, LYING PIECE OF CRAP ON THIS EARTH! And, the brakes WILL be checked on the car as well to try to determine any root cause that would have caused it. Yeah Blo, the public is buying this. "Hey Lindsay supposedly the brakes were replaced two days before you got this car, so we will go with this story." "Linds gets a big ole smile while she lights up" So blame James and now the dealership. Brakes DO NOT FAIL on those cars. Driver error bitch.

TMZ you made up the sources crap to give you an excuse to put up that lame poll. Your bullying of Lindsay Lohan over this accident is uncomfortable to watch.

Has Lindsay suffered any brain trauma like in the NFL when she continually hit her head against the wall or the headboard several thousand times,

Are the people in charge of Lindsay's movie about Liz Taylor kicking themselves for hiring Lindsay? Should they shutdown production and cut their losses?

She HAD a driver. In the car behind her. The car she agreed to be driven in while making Liz and Dick. The car she refused to drive in because she wanted to be in her own car with her drugs. What she needs is a good couple of months of jail or she'll never learn there are consequences to her actions.

TMZ, instead of continually printing the misspellings by your staff why not spend a few bucks and buy a dictionary for them to share. The educational level of your writers is an embarrassment to you.

Cars have BRAKES, not breaks.
