(Newser) – A car in which Lindsay Lohan was a passenger struck and injured a paparazzo early this morning outside a Los Angeles nightclub, then quickly left the scene, police say. The BMW "sped away at a high rate of speed and hit a paparazzi photographer causing an injury to his hand, his wrist," an LAPD rep tells KTLA. The driver, an unidentified woman, is now involved in a criminal investigation of assault with a deadly weapon, TMZ reports.
