Lindsay Lohan hurt when her Porsche, big rig collide
Actress Lindsay Lohan was being treated at a hospital after a collision Friday between her Porsche and a big-rig truck, officials said.
Lohan's condition was not immediately known. Santa Monica police said the accident occurred on Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica and that an investigation was ongoing.
The crash occurred during an upswing in Lohan's career after several years of incidents that had her in court numerous times. Lohan has said she's learned her lessons from the problems and was trying to restart her movie career.
Lohan has been on probation since a 2007 conviction for driving under the influence. Since then she also has been convicted of shoplifting and is currently on probation for both offenses.
The 25-year-old actress has been sent to jail several times for violating the terms of probation. But in the last few months, under a strict regimen of community service at the morgue and counseling, a judge has praised her behavior and said she may take her off supervised probation this month.
