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.

So, she wasn't insured to drive that Porsche? Lifetime probably only insured Gavin so she couldn't drive, but Little Miss Irresponsibility drove anyways....Hey Larry, was replacing an $80K car in the budget? And it's only week one! Good luck with that.........

She is the biggest a** ever. There were Liz & Dick team members involved; I hope the trucking company sues the sh*t out of the entire production and shuts it down, Lifetime deserves it -- this is exactly why no one else will hire Lindsay, and why this is extremely costly "free" publicity.

I'm pretty sure if my Taurus has an Event recording device (Black box) then her RENTED Porsche would have one. Insurance companies like those things for a reason.

She needs to study the laws of physics and defenceing driving.18 wheelers never stop of four wheelers.Big vs small.trucks can`t get up to speed as fast as cars and can`t stop as fast.She needs to slow down and get a radar system on any cars she drives before she is scrapped off the butend of some semi

That's always been her tactic.. if one lie looks like it might fail, start a whole new one ... rinse and repeat until everyone is either too confused to remember the original lie or until they just get too bored and tired to care anymore.

Meh, screw this, I'm more interested in what Lindsay has to say for herself regarding THE BAG THAT THE COPS CAN'T BE ALLOWED TO SEE.

She'll probably try to say it was just her Elizabeth Taylor script, her rosary beads, some multivitamins and some rocks (because Lohan is really into geology didn't you know) but it would still be funny to see her squirming trying to explain herself.

Poor Vikrim, he's had to pay off Dawn Holland, the Hookah Lounge manager, and the two girls that Lindsay assaulted at the Standard Hotel, and now this. Talk about a high maintenance lay.

Linds is so great at blaming anything but herself. Brakes on a porsche failed? I doubt it. 18 Wheeler cut her off? seriously doubt. considering the damage to her car, how fast was she going? That's a LOT of damage.
