Lindsay Lohan was lucky to escape serious injury in a major car accident this afternoon.
LiLo collided with a dump truck on a Southern California highway, totaling her Porsche in the process.
According to police, Lohan was driving her black Porsche with an unidentified male passenger on the Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica on her way to the set of her latest movie project when the accident occurred.
The actress and her passenger were taken to a local hospital as a precaution, and released shortly thereafter. Neither Lohan nor the driver of the truck were under the influence of anything, according to authorities.
“Lindsay was involved in an automobile accident today on her way to the set….She is fine and was released less than two hours later and is already headed back to the set to resume work. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured in the accident,” said Lohan’s publicist, Steve Honig, in a prepared statement.
Lohan’s Porsche suffered a crushed front and smashed windows, as seen in the photos below from TMZ.
LiLo is currently playing late screen legend Elizabeth Taylor for a Lifetime TV movie Liz & Dick, based on Taylor’s love affair with actor Richard Burton.
