This is James. He’s the guy who was driving that truck that Lindsay Lohan rear-ended. He seems like a nice, genuine guy, and he has an interesting story about what happened on Friday.
Basically, James said that another car was following Lindsay’s Porsche, and after the crash happened, everyone tried to make a run for it. James, being the upstanding citizen that he is, called 911 to be like “hey, this bitch just hit me and now she’s trying to pull an Amanda Bynes.” Someone in the other car tried to bribe James, but he wasn’t having it, and he’d already called the police. But the interesting part, of course, is the part where he describes a pink bag that Lindsay’s assistant filled up with something and then hid away somewhere.
So what was in the bag? Probably drugs, huh? Or maybe Lindsay and her assistant robbed a bank for coke money. Maybe it was Gwyneth Paltrow’s head (“WHAT’S IN THE BAAAAG?!”). Who knows? I do. It was meth.
Lindsay’s rep, meanwhile, has given an extraordinarily vague statement about the whole thing:
“Lindsay is cooperating fully with law enforcement. She has answered all their questions and provided them with everything they have asked for.”
And Lindsay is still busy telling everyone that it wasn’t her fault, this time because her breaks didn’t work:
Lindsay Lohan is now telling friends the breaks on her rented Porsche DIDN’T WORK and that’s why she slammed into the back of an 18-wheeler … TMZ has learned.
As TMZ first reported, in the moments following the accident, Lindsay claimed the semi-truck cut her off … and that is what caused the accident. The driver of the truck told TMZ that was not the case and has witnesses to back up his tale.
According to our sources, Lindsay is sticking with the “truck cut me off!!!” story, but with a twist … she claims she slammed on the brakes … but nothing. And get this … somehow Lindsay says she was told the brakes on the rental were replaced two days before the crash.
Lindsay is telling people she feels lucky to be alive, having only suffered cuts and bruises … no serious injuries.
Considering her driving history, one of these days … well, let’s just say she needs a driver.
Sorry, Lindsay, I’m going to have to go with James on this one.
