In the lawsuit, Nubia Del Carmen Preza claims that the 'Machete' actress hit her with her Maserati while driving through a West Hollywood intersection in September 2010.
Lindsay Lohan couldn't seem to stay away from trouble. While she's been acknowledged for her efforts in fulfilling her court-ordered obligations, the 25-year-old actress once again finds herself facing a lawsuit. This time around, she was sued by a nanny who claimed to have been struck by her back in 2010.
Nubia Del Carmen Preza filed the suit in Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday, January 25. In it, she claimed that LiLo ran into her at the intersection of Alta Loma Road and Holloway Drive in West Hollywood at approximately 4 P.M. on September 1. At the time, Preza was crossing the street, while the "Georgia Rule" star was driving a Maserati.
Preza stated that because of the incident, she suffered "disabling and serious personal injuries, pain, suffering and anguish." She's now seeking unspecified damages to cover medical and incidental expenses, compensation for loss and impairment of earnings, as well as court costs and interest.
Commenting on the lawsuit, LiLo's representative Steven Honig told E! News, "To the best of my knowledge, neither Lindsay nor her attorneys have been served with a lawsuit. So we really can't comment on something that hasn't been served through the proper channels." He then noted, "People like to do this - give lawsuits to the media before they serve it to Lindsay."
As for the car accident itself, TMZ detailed that LiLo hit Preza, who was at the time pushing a stroller, after running a red light in West Hollywood. One witness by the name of Brayan Jaime claimed to see the bumper of LiLo's car hitting Preza in the leg and lifting three of the stroller's four wheels into the air. The child was reportedly uninjured though.
This isn't the first time LiLo got into trouble for her driving. Earlier this January, the older sister of Ali Lohan was slapped with a lawsuit by a paparazzo over a 2010 car accident. Grigor Balyan filed the suit against her to get "reasonable compensation" after he was left badly injured from being hit by the actress' car when she was leaving a Hollywood club on January 10, 2010.
