The trucker driver, who has been identified as James, said that after the accident, he called 911 as Lindsay and her male assistant got out of the Porsche and into the Escalade. James said the assistant picked up a pink bag, “filled it up withsomething and then put clothes on top of it.

James also shared that Lindsay Lohan was trying to flee the scene after hitting his truck, but he managed to block the way and she had to stop. Meanwhile, according to James, her associates tried to bribe him and told him that they could go to a nearby bank and withdraw some cash.

James expressed that he was more interested in solving the matter legally. He did not know who the personality in the Porsche car was, but he understood from her associates’ behaviour that she was a famous person. “Him and the guy took me across the street and told me this was some kind of famous person and they didn’t want to be in the media. But I’d already called 911 because they were trying to get away from the scene. But they packed a bag and then the limousine driver told me, ‘don’t mention the bag to the cops’,” said James.

Lindsay Lohan was taken to the hospital after the accident. Her publicist said she was hurt and had some bruises, but there was nothing serious to worry. Lindsay Lohan was released from hospital after a complete check-up the same day and returned to the set to continue filming.
