Hey, remember how Lindsay Lohan got into a car accident with a truck on the PCH? And everyone just sort of checked their watches and muttered something along the lines of “yeah, that sounds about right?” Well, turns out it gets worse. One of the caveats of stunt-casting Lindsay for Lifetime‘s Liz & Dick was that she had to have a crapload of insurance placed on her in the extremely likely case that things went awry. One of the parts of that insurance contract: Lindsay wasn’t allowed to drive at all. Deadline reports:
The question on everyone’s mind after the accident is how Lohan, who has had her fair share of brushes with the law, was allowed to get behind the wheel while going to work. That was not supposed to happen, Thompson said, noting that the production provides a limousine to drive the actress to and from the set of the movie every day. “When they went to pick her up today, for some reason she decided they (Lohan and her assistant) would get in her own car, so the limousine driver followed them.”
The accident came only four days into filming on Liz & Dick, not a very encouraging sign given Lohan’s troubled past. “I was nervous before the movie started, now I’m just petrified,” Thompson said. He added that he is relieved now after seeing Lohan but the first hour after the accident when nobody knew whether she was OK was pretty scary. “I was telling someone: Lindsay went to the doctor, and I should go see a psychiatrist.”
Just putting this out there, but when your insurance contract doesn’t even trust you enough to get behind the wheel of a car without something happening? That might be a good sign that you should start taking cabs. Or, you know, one of the damn limos provided for you. Seriously, there’s one person in Hollywood who’s willing to trust Lindsay at this point, and she’s practically made it her mission to destroy his psyche.
