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, 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.
