Lindsay Lohan was exhausted, dehydrated, spokesman says

Actress Lindsay Lohan leaves the Airport Branch Courthouse in Los Angeles after a progress report hearing in March.

Lindsay Lohan was exhauste d and dehydrated when paramedics examined her Friday but is doing fine and will continue filming her current movie, a spokesman said.

Paramedics rushed to a Marina del Rey hotel after production workers became concerned that she was ill. She was examined but not hospitalized.

Lohan is filming a Lifetime television movie in which she portrays Elizabeth Taylor.

The incident comes a week after Lohan's Porsche collided with a dump truck on Pacific Coast Highway.

Police are continuing to investigate the crash, when sent Lohan to the hospital for observation.

A spokesman said Lohan is feeling better.
"She is resting now and is hoping to be back on set later this afternoon,"  spokesman Steve Honig told The Times' Ministry of Gossip.

"Lindsay has been working a grueling schedule for the last couple of days," Honig told the E! News website. " She was exhausted and went back to her room to sleep. Producers were apparently concerned and called the fire department and paramedics found her sleeping but determined that she was fine, just extremely exhausted and slightly dehydrated."

The crash on PCH occurred during an upswing in Lohan's fortunes after several years of incidents that had her in court numerous times. Lohan has said she's learned her lessons from the problems.

She was on probation for a 2007 conviction for driving under the influence. Since then she has also been convicted of shoplifting and was on probation for that offense as well.

Lohan was sent to jail several times for violating the terms of her probation. But she hewed to a strict regimen of community service at the county morgue and counseling. In March, a judge ended her probation in the DUI case and reduced the shoplifting probation to unsupervised status.
