Lindsay Lohan was apparently not seriously injured Friday in a Porsche-vs.-18-wheeler accident that sent her and her passenger to the hospital. Nor was she under the influence, in case that's the first place your mind went.

Though the crash was still under investigation, the actress showed no signs of intoxication and was not cited for anything after the midday wreck on Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica, officials told L.A. Now.

Lohan had been driving to the "Liz & Dick" set before the crash, spokesman Steve Honig told the Associated Press, and was headed there once again after spending two hours at UCLA Medical Center.

Lohan's assistant, who was in the passenger seat, was said to be bloodied and bruised immediately after the wreck, Gossip Cop reported. Pictures of the black Porsche Panamera show that its passenger side sustained the most damage, including a shattered window.

According to TMZ, which first reported the news, Lohan said she'd been cut off by the truck driver.

After two DUI arrests in 2006 — she's finally off the hook for those — Lohan has been a bit of a magnet for driving woes. Her Porsche Panamera even got its own 15 minutes of fame in October when the actress showed up 40 minutes late to morgue duty behind the wheel of the $80,000 car.

On the positive side of the highway, a hit-and-run accusation against Lohan by a Hollywood lounge manager was dismissed in May by the L.A. district attorney's office, which said it found no evidence to support the complaint.

Lohan has been filming an Elizabeth Taylor biopic for Lifetime, which this week released pictures of the starlet in character as La Liz.
