Sgt Richard Lewis of Santa Monica Police said there was no sign Lindsay Lohan or the lorry driver was under the influence of alcohol, the Press Association reports.

He said they will investigate the accident to establish who was at fault, adding: "We're treating this as a regular accident."

We hope Lindsay takes time to rest after her ordeal and fully recovers soon.
