Celebrity news website TMZ reported that Lindsay Lohan had been taken to hospital after the crash.

Lohan was driving her black Porsche on the Pacific Coast Highway in Santa Monica when it slammed into the back of an 18-wheeler around noon.

The Porsche is totaled, according to TMZ. The passenger window was shattered and the bumper was fully off her car.

Lohan was on her way to film scenes for the Lifetime movie “Liz and Dick,” which chronicles the love affair between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, reports The Huff Post.

“First and foremost, we’re concerned about the well-being of Lindsay and anyone else who may have been involved in the accident,” Lifetime spokesman Les Eisner.

He added: “Lindsay has been doing fantastic work on the set of `Liz and Dick.'”

Steve Honig, Lohan’s publicist, said the actress was released about two hours after the accident and was returned to the set to continue filming.

“Fortunately, no one was seriously injured in the accident,” Honig wrote in an email.

Santa Monica Police Sgt. Richard Lewis said that there was no sign Lohan was driving while impaired.

He added that his agency would continue to investigate who was at fault in the wreck.

“We’re treating this as a regular accident,” Lewis said.

The truck’s driver was uninjured and driver also showed no signs of drunk driving, Lewis said.

The Telegraph writes that Lindsay Lohan is forging ahead with a comeback after a string of legal and personal troubles since 2007, wich included stints in jail, rehab and court.

The actress was released in March from almost five years of formal probation stemming from a 2007 drunken driving and cocaine possession arrest.

Lohan had her driver’s license restored back  in August 2010 after losing her driving privileges because of a pair of DUI arrests in 2008.

The actress is still being sued by three men who claim that she forced them to remain in a sport utility vehicle she commandeered and used to chase a woman she thought was her assistant on Pacific Coast Highway.

That incident ended with Lohan’s arrest in the parking lot of the Santa Monica Police Department.

Besides playing screen legend Elizabeth Taylor for the Lifetime TV movie “Liz & Dick,” based on Taylor’s love affair with actor Richard Burton, Lohan was recently the host of NBC’s sketch comedy show “Saturday Night Live” and made a guest appearance on Fox’s hit TV musical comedy “Glee.”
