Lindsay Lohan has been sued by Grandeur Inc., which claims the actress crashed into a company van in October 2005.
Lindsay Lohan's legal saga goes on and on. It seems the actress-singer will never stop creating media headlines with her antics. While the star is recovering in rehab, she's hit with a lawsuit over a 2005 car crash.
The suit stemmed from an October 4, 2005 car accident during which Lindsay left the Ivy restaurant on Robertson Blvd. in Beverly Hills, driving her jet black Mercedes when suddenly struck a vehicle that was making an illegal U-turn in front of her. Her car then crashed into the parked van owned by Grandeur Incorporated.
Explaining on what happened, Lindsay's representative said the paparazzi were chasing her, whereas onlookers claimed she was just "goofing and speeding", which was strengthen by L.A. County Sheriff's Department's statement, saying "Preliminary investigations have revealed that paparazzi were not a factor in the traffic collision".
In the court papers, filed May 18th, Grandeur Inc. is seeking $3,624.84 in damages. While Lindsay's spokeswoman had no comment, a judge is scheduled to hear the matter on June 20th.
