UPDATED (6:15 p.m. ET): Lindsay Lohan's spokesman, Steve Honig, tells Lifeline Live the actress is fine after being involved in a serious car crash on a coastal highway near Los Angeles.
"She is fine and was released less than two hours later and is already headed back to the set (of her Lifetime movie Liz & Dick) to resume work. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured in the accident."

ORIGINAL: Uh-oh! Lindsay Lohan has been in another fender bender, but this time she didn't just hit another car, she collided with an 18-wheeler.
The troubled actress' Porsche reportedly hit the truck while she was traveling on the Pacific Coast Highway this afternoon at 2:45 p.m. ET, according to the Associated Press.
Police are investigating the crash and say while the extent of Lohan's injuries are unknown, no one else in the crash was injured.
TMZ reports that Lohan and her assistant, who was traveling in the car with her, were bruised and bloodied at the scene, but People says that according to authorities, the actress' injuries are not severe.
Lohan has been filming a Lifetime movie on the love affair between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Production on the film started earlier this week and was expected to conclude around the end of June, AP reports.
"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 said, adding, "Lindsay has been doing fantastic work on the set of Liz & Dick."
Lifetime had no comment on whether the filming schedule would be altered because of Lohan's accident, according to AP.
