Mere weeks after Hollywood train wreck Lindsay Lohan crashed a rented Porsche 911 into the back of an 18-wheeler on the Pacific Coast Highway, it has come to light that she violated the terms of an insurance policy by driving.
The number crunchers in the insurance company's risk assessment office decided that Lohan's string of DUIs and crashes was too rich for their blood, and did what the California DMV has apparently not had the balls to do. They made public roads safer by keeping her off of them.
Little did they know how that would turn out.
Lohan is starring as Elizabeth Taylor in Liz and Dick, a Lifetime production about the famous actress' tumultuous love affair with Richard Burton. But as with anything involving Lohan, drama couldn't be confined to the small screen. Concerned that they wouldn't be able to insure the entire film due to potential Lindsay episodes, its producers agreed to make sure she didn't end up behind the wheel. Even the best intentions...
The fact that she was being followed by a production SUV when she wrecked the Porsche doesn't bode well for Lohan's employer's ability to toe the line on that count. But a few days before the crash, executive producer Larry Thompson told The Hollywood Reporter that although Lohan is somewhat of a wildcard as to what kind of offstage antics he could expect, she was doing a fine job playing one half of a troubled Hollywood romance.
We wonder what he has to say now that he's pulled the joker. In private, it's probably something along the lines of, "Not Lohan again!"
