Lindsay Lohan's collision with big rig on PCH under investigation

June 8, 2012 |  2:26 pm

Santa Monica police said Friday that detectives were trying to determine the cause of an accident that sent actress Lindsay Lohan to the hospital.

Officials said Lohan's Porsche collided with a big-rig truck on Pacific Coast Highway on Friday morning.

Lohan's condition was not immediately known but her injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.  Police said two people were in Lohan's car but it was unclear who was driving.

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 was on probation since a 2007 conviction for driving under the influence. Since then she also has been convicted of shoplifting and was 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.
