Lilo Car Crash Post: Truck Driver blames Lindsay & alleges bribery; Lindsay claims he's a liar

Truck Driver says accident was all Lindsay's Fault

The guy driving the truck Lindsay Lohan smashed into yesterday tells TMZ ... any idea that he is to blame for the accident is pure BS ... and he has the witnesses to prove it was all LiLo's fault.

As TMZ first reported, Lindsay was taken to the hospital following a nasty wreck on the Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica and sources close to Lindsay have told TMZ ... Lindsay feels the 18-wheeler cut her off.

But when we asked James, the driver of the semi-truck, about that idea ... he emphatically denied it and claims he has multiple witnesses that saw Lindsay "flying" down the highway. James says he couldn't have cut Lindsay off because he was already in the right lane when the accident occurred.


Truck Driver Claims Bribe Offered for Silence

The guy driving the giant truck that got rear ended by Lindsay Lohan Friday tells TMZ ... LiLo was trying to flee the scene and when he tried to stop her ... her people tried to buy his silence.

Lindsay was driving on the PCH yesterday when she collided with a semi-truck driven by James (we're leaving out his last name). Lohan was trailed by a Cadillac Escalade (which James refers to as a limousine) ... driven by someone connected with her Lifetime movie.

James tells TMZ after the accident, he called 911 as Lindsay and her male assistant got out of the Porsche and into the Escalade. James says the assistant picked up a pink bag, "filled it up with something" and then put clothes on top of it.

James claims the driver of the Escalade was trying to keep him away from the SUV. James says he wanted to exchange info with Lindsay (whom he did not recognize) but it was apparent to him she was about to flee the scene.

James says the Escalade driver offered him money, saying they could "go to the bank" and withdraw some cash.

James says the Escalade driver and Lindsay's assistant put on a full court press: "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.'"

Steve Honig, Lindsay's rep, tells TMZ, "Lindsay is cooperating fully with law enforcement. She has answered all their questions and provided them with everything they have asked for."


Lindsay Lohan: Truck Driver Is A LIAR!!!

Lindsay Lohan is calling BS on the truck driver’s allegation of bribery ... and everything else he said about the aftermath of their accident is a flat out lie ... sources close to Lohan tell TMZ.

As TMZ previously reported, James -- the guy driving the 18-wheeler Lindsay crashed into on Friday -- told TMZ her people tried to offer him money to keep quiet. He also claimed Lindsay and her people took a mysterious bag out of her Porsche and told James not to mention it to police.

According to our sources, Lindsay says the whole tale is made up -- there was no bribe attempt and no bag removed the car.

We're told Lindsay says the whole story is fabricated and she is (once again) just chalking it up to someone out to make a buck off her.

This thirty fuckin' scumbag trying to milk the public's sympathy and Lindsay's money.

I don't believe one word that comes out of his mouth.

Yet Lohan is the champion of truth?

I don't have my headphones atm so I can't watch the video but my sympathy is with the truck driver. Most trucking companies have a very, very strict 3 strikes policy. Any accident, for any reason at all, no matter who is at fault, goes on their record. Once you reach three you're fired and probably won't find work in that field again with any company that's reputable enough to run a background check.

It looks like the driver is a longhaul driver, too, so that means he owns his own truck. That means he'll have to pay for the damages out of his own pocket and no one will have his back if some starlet starts blaming him. Honestly he's just lucky that it was Lilo that crashed into him and not any celeb with any level of public trust.

MTE. Trucking companies have little to no tolerance for bad driving. If you get pulled over for reckless driving or taken in for DUI (even in your own car/not working), the company will immediately fire you and you can lose your CDL.

lol that's funny because, as a rule, most truck drivers sure don't act like it

idc how unreliable LiLo is, truckers are a motherfucking menace

baby girl no.
you gotta realize that Linds is a wreck... and something in the milk is not clean from either of them.

her history of lying, and erratic driving are both against her.
mothermayiflirt 10th-Jun-2012 06:14 pm (UTC)
Yes because she's the beacon of honesty and goodness. LOL. I'll wait for the police report and what the witnesses say before I trust Saint Lilo.

Yet you believe Lindsay? Girl what is wrong with you?
filmfreakfranco 10th-Jun-2012 06:25 pm (UTC)
I agree, TMZ probably paid him to say things to make this a juicier scandal and he knew that where there is money to pull from, there is always a little lie to tell
d00ditsemily 10th-Jun-2012 06:34 pm (UTC)
Really? You don't find it weird that any incident she's in everyone else is the liar and not her?

yes because Lindsay NEVER lies.
squishinator 10th-Jun-2012 06:44 pm (UTC)
Oh, please. She has a track record as:

1. a reckless driver.
2. a liar.
3. a druggie
4. a general hot mess

If you REALLY think she's gotten her act together you're on as much crack as she is.

If Lindsay is the person you elect to believe than you are an easy mark for a con artist.

Now sis. This is Lindsay we're talking about.
