Lindsay Lohan

FOOTAGE of the

Alleged Pedestrian Strike

breaking news

TMZ has obtained surveillance footage showing the moment Lindsay Lohan allegedly struck a pedestrian in front of a NYC hotel ... and one thing is clear -- NOTHING IS CLEAR.

The footage begins as Lindsay's black Porsche is in the street, attempting to pull in to the hotel parking garage ... which was blocked by several pedestrians.

Seemed like Lindsay was making a slow entrance ... but a man in a plaid shirt can be seen walking in front of the car ... and she MAY have made contact with him. It's hard to tell.

After the alleged collision ... the man (who claimed he was injured) can be seen SPRINTING into the parking garage in an effort to catch up to Lindsay's car.

TMZ broke the story ... Lindsay was later arrested for leaving the scene of an accident.

The alleged victim claims he was hospitalized for injuries sustained in the alleged impact ... and says Lindsay reeked of booze at the time of the incident.

For her part, Lindsay ADAMANTLY denies she did anything wrong and claims the allegations are total BS.

Lindsay will never get it. Doesn't matter if you run the guy over or barely hit him, you stop right there and see if he's ok and you have the cops there to file a report, you don't flee the scene just because you think you shouldn't have to answer for it. You are so delusional Lohan and so is your drugged up mom. As for these "friends" you say support you, sure they support you, they like getting all the sexual favors you give them, that's the only way you get anything these days cause you sure aren't working on anything else and you have zero talent.

P.S. If you were mingling around a group of people, and you were suddenly hit by a vehicle, somebody around you would know it. Nobody went to his aid. It doesn't seem like he said anything like, hey, that car just hit me, because nobody turned to look at the license plate or anything. I hope this guy doesn't end up getting any money, because these scams cost us money too, as taxpayers, paying for the court processes and police attendance. A pulled tendon that he claims as an injury, is something he could have done to himself after the fact. It is not an injury that would occur if you were brushed by a passing car, unless there was a pull of your body in some way.

I understand Lindsay is not someone of good moral character, but where do we draw the line? This guy clearly embellished his story. Whether we like Lindsay or not, this guy's moral character is just as questionable as hers. Where's the part where he "fell to the side"? How does he know that she "reeked" of alcohol when the closest he ever got to her was when he was standing beside the passenger door, as she happened to be driving away. I'm curious as to how someone's nose is that good whilst smelling someone in a moving vehicle and you aren't even anywhere near the driver's side of the vehicle? And I'm not even going to get into how someone sprints on torn tendons, I've had torn tendons before and I know for a fact I could NOT sprint on them. The entire thing seems preposterous and I don't give a crap that Lindsay is a person of crappy moral character. This is about what is right and what is wrong, regardless of who is involved or how bad a track record they have. Logic tells me this guy is milking everything he can with his ahem, "injuries".

anyway she needs to stop driving altogether, and doing other things that just give people ammo. I hate to say it but there are other times she has seemingly been set up before. She needs to take learn from this situation, as well as any other situation she has been in where people have lied/embellished stories about her and take it as a sign she needs to STOP doing things like driving, going out to clubs, just anything in general where someone could set her up. She needs to quit doing things that could leave her in a compromising position, where others can and will distort the truth about her. At this point I believe it's her own damn fault for giving people ammo. She's been through set up's before (I believe) at what damn point do you finally realize the whole world hates you and many of them are going to set you up because you just make it so damn easy. Unfortunately no one is going to feel sorry for you for getting set up, the best thing to do is just stop giving them reason to.

At normal speed, no, she doesn't plow through people. Based on the counter in the corner, it's about 12 seconds of footage. Played at that speed, she's not plowing, but also the guy does not really pause before running. Bear in mind that you can't just speed up the footage until it's smooth - it's not a continuous set of frames.

Looks like she never hit him!

Boo Hoo or should I say Blo Hoo. That's what happens when you and your entire bottom feeder family are all grifters/scam artists. People have a tendency not to believe a f*cking, lying word Blohan and her ilk say. For all we know, if this was a "set up" like she claims, she could have set it up herself. She's not about to let Bynes or even her skank waste of a mother get ahead of her on the publicity train.

What a clown this guy is. My grandmother can take a harder hit than that. It's amazing how some people have no dignity and will do anything for a buck. This clown should be embarrassed.

the idiot saw the car and instead of backing up like the others went straight against the car like sometimes pedestrians do in NYC (dunno why but they do that). So he was aware of the car and didn't backup. He's gonna pay , big time.

Ha ha, clearly math isn't my strong point. The footage is actually more like 20 seconds elapsed time, based on the counter in the corner. That means we are seeing it at about real speed, this is about the actual timing of events. Not 5 seconds, like the Vimeo version someone made. It's choppy because the security camera is shooting fewer than 30 frames/second.

If that is all it takes to claim that you have been hit by her car, I will personal sprint in an effort to be hit by her car and cash in later.

she may have grazed him, but it wasn't like he was making it seem to be. i saw the dude in a pic on inside edition sitting in a wheelchair with a leg brace on and crutches. and what makes it worse was that he actually POSED for the picture.

oh thats bull****!!!!! that guy did that **** on purpose. what are his injuries? where they really that bad? he got in front of her car on purpose, he wasn't on the side of the street he walk in front of an on coming care, the car stop and moved slowly out of his way. if he said the car hit him its bc he wouldn't move out of the way like the rest of those dumb asses that were blocking the entry way for the garage. this man is looking for a payout and since this video is out his injuries weren't that bad or any at all since he ran after her to tell her oh you ran me over give me money.
