*shocked face*

The Mean Girls star was driving her Porsche late at night from one nightclub to another in New York when police say she hit a passer-by, injuring his knee.

Lindsay is believed to have had two guys in the car with her when she sped off.

However, she did eventually stop and one of her passengers got out to talk to the man.

After this they continued their night and it was only when Lindsay left the hotel at around 3am that she was eventually arrested.

No drugs or drink are believed to have been in her system at the time of the crash.

Witnesses on the scene said that the Lilo was traveling at a "very low rate of speed" and the man suffered no visible injuries.

We think it just sounds like an accident that could have happened to anyone, however it is slightly awkward timing considering Lindsay's rant.

Just last week we reported that she has become the first celebrity ever to be permanently evicted from a prestigious LA hotel.
