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.

Lindsey is digging a big hole for herself with her lies. The brakes on the Porche can easily be checked to confirm if they failed. 18-wheelers have to drive in the right lane, therefore even if the semi changed lanes (to the faster lane) it would not have impacted the front (head one) passenger side of her car. Appears to me she was in the slow lane behind the semi and tried to pass him but she miscalculated and hit the back left corner of his truck. That's why the Porche had damage to the front passenger side. Ultimately she will have to buy a new Porche for the rental company. Does she have insurance?

Guys, Lindsay didn't say this and her brakes didn't fail, this is the usual MO from TMZ, no story so they make it up.


TMZ are you trying to kill this woman? The fake stories you put out through your fake sources would push anyone over the edge. For pitys sake stop this now otherwise you'll be singing her praises when saying RIP Lindsay and posting a pic of her coffin. Stop this harrassment now.

Hahaha, RENT! She can't go out and buy her own car? Now that IS pathetic. And this BS story of the breaks failing, you think the rental company is going to risk a Porsche by not properly installing brakes? Boy! Are you stupid.

Sure, not throw TMZ under the bus. Prove to me TMZ is lying. Cars have data recording systems in them that can easily verify if the brakes failed. She reads these stories, saw the no skidmarks comments and went with the brakes failed excuse now. Also a brake icon on the instrument panel would be lit up stating there was an issue with the brakes. Does she even know what she is driving? Those cars are serviced by techs who are trained by Porsche. Also notice she said she was lucky to be alive. Nevermind the assistant who took the brunt of the injuries. The continued bull from her just makes you sick. She knows she's in trouble with this one.

Lindsay was driving way too fast in her rented Porsche, possibly dropped her cigarette and slammed into the back of that semi. Eventually this girl will end up dead.

Needs a driver? It's more like a driver and some driving lessons, including the classroom and the driver's Ed, student driving. She must either drive so fast, needs new glasses, or pemanately needs to get off the road. In any event, someone needs to take her car keys away!!

Apparently 9% in the Poll are buying this excuse...
Excuuuuuse Me? That excuse and the 'phantom' auto
who 'cut me off' are the 2 most widely used excuses given the Police, Insurance Co's., and the media (as in this case). I guess Barnum Was Right !~

This girl has a major Victims Complex. It's always someone else's fault, never her own - everyone is out to get her. She needs psychiatric help, fast.

Also with all this highly charged emotional turmoil, can this "so called actress" learn her lines & arrive on set prepared?
No, I think not!
She will be sued by the insurance company of the truck driver + by the insurance company of the rightful owner of the Porsche. She also can be sued by her assistant who got hurt too!

Can't figure out which is worse; her acting, her lying, her overinflated ego or her overinflated face.
