Lindsay Lohan has broken an insurance rule that banned her from driving, it has been reported.
The troubled star had explicitly been forbidden to get behind the wheel by the insurance company who is providing cover for her new movie Liz & Dick.
According to the policy, the actress was not supposed to be in control of a vehicle for the duration of the filming process, TMZ writes. Despite the warning, the 25-year-old was involved in a car crash last week in which she wrecked a hired Porsche on the Pacific Coast Highway.
"Sources connected with the production tell us... the insurance company that issued the policy - which would take a major hit if Lindsay couldn't complete the film - was extremely reluctant to take the risk. The insurance company set numerous conditions on its coverage, and one of them was banning Lindsay from the roads which have landed her in big trouble multiple times - DUIs, car accidents, and on and on," TMZ reports. "Sources tell us... the honchos producing the movie knew Lindsay was driving in violation of the policy, but it appears no one cared - that is until Lindsay crashed a Porsche on Pacific Coast Highway, with a production SUV following right behind her."
So far, the insurance company has not withdrawn their cover and Lindsay has been told not to drive until filming wraps.
The former child star took to Twitter to thank her fans for their support today and seemingly reiterate her intention to focus on her career and stay out of trouble.
"I JUST WANT TO WORK AND CREATE things that make others smile," she wrote. "i love life. 'party girl' is very different. you only live once. ;) (sic)."
