Lindsay Lohan headed straight back to work after being involved in a car accident.

The actress was released from hospital on the same afternoon she was admitted after her vehicle plough into the back of an 18-wheel truck.

A representative says she was brought to Santa Monica UCLA hospital only as a precaution and she had no serious injuries.

Lindsay's assistant - who was travelling in the passenger seat and went to hospital separately from the star - also has been declared physically fine.

The website reports that she headed directly from the ward to her original destination following her checkup.

The troubled actress - who is currently shooting her movie return as the late Dame Elizabeth Taylor in Liz & Dick - was driving her black Porsche on the Pacific Coast Highway when it hit a large vehicle.

According to TMZ.com, the rear bumper was taken off the car and the passenger window was smashed.

Lindsay has been trying to get her life back on track after a series of personal problems and legal wrangles in recent years, but recently pulled out of negotiations to star in a biopic about mobster John Gotti, with publicist Steve Honig confirming no agreement could be made.
