(Newser) – That 18-wheeler Lindsay Lohan smashed into on the Pacific Coast highway this week? She says it cut her off—and what's more, she claims the newly replaced brakes on her rented Porsche failed during the accident, TMZ reports. But the truck driver (TMZ calls him "James") says witnesses saw Lohan "flying" down the highway, and she tried to bribe him after the accident.

He also argues that he couldn't have cut her off, because he was already in the right lane when she hit him. As for Lindsay, she's telling people she's lucky to have survived the crash with mere cuts and bruises. Quips TMZ: "Considering her driving history, one of these days ... well, let's just say she needs a driver."
