Lindsay Lohan Car Crash

Truck Driver Lawyers Up

6/11/2012 8:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0610_lilo_truck_driver_getty_tmzThe truck driver on the receiving end of Lindsay Lohan's Porsche has already lawyered up, TMZ has learned.

TMZ spoke with truck driver James, who tells us he was injured in the crash, and apparently wants money for his pain and troubles ... thus the reason for a lawyer.

James says he saw a doctor Sunday, despite previously telling us he felt fine.  He would not describe the nature of his injuries, on the advice of his hired gun.

TMZ broke the car crash story, and then the plot thickened when James told TMZ ... after the accident Lindsay's assistant removed a mysterious pink bag from the Porsche and asked him not to mention it to the media. He says Lindsay's people asked him to settle up on the spot, but he declined.

I'm no detective but after watching the TMZ video of this guy's story, he's clearly lying. First he says "the female driver" got into the back seat of the Escalade, then he says she got into the front seat. Which was it? Also, when he talks about the alleged bribery attempt, he looks away and then has one of those nervous gulps. I'm pretty sure he's about to make a fool of himself.

Typical Lohan fans. The guy gets hit in the rear by Lohan, clearly her fault in the eyes of everyone except for those select few who WON'T see reason, and suddenly the VICTIM is the bad guy because he hires a lawyer? For all we know, his company or his company's insurance agent may have hired the lawyer.

But let's not give him the benefit of the doubt, eh Lohan fanatics? Nope, he's after riches and 15 minutes of fame. Yep straight from the Lohan Playbook.

Idiots.

I was siding with this guy after the crash. Believed him totally. Now he's just another d-bag looking for a quick buck.

I think this is a pretty good indication that he wasn't at fault...

I was going to make a point about how Lofans automatically extend the benefit of the doubt to Lindsay, but never to her victims.

But then, I thought how something is very wrong when a person has their very own victims. How many victims do you have? I don't have any.
