'Liz & Dick' Producer “Petrified” By Lindsay Lohan's Car Accident, Says She Was Not Supposed To Drive

Around 4:30 PM today, hours after her call time, Lindsay Lohan finally made it to the set of her Lifetime movie Liz & Dick following a detour to the hospital for an evaluation after the  car she was driving to work crashed into a 18-wheeler. “She is shaken but not stirred,” Liz & Dick executive producer Larry A. Thompson said from the set of the movie in Malibu. “She wants to work, we are sending her to makeup hoping to resume production and get as much as we can done.” Scheduled for today were exterior scenes, most of them with Lohan, who plays Elizabeth Taylor in the film about the movie icon’s romance with Richard Burton. The few scenes without her were shot and filming was suspended while producers were trying to get information on Lohan’s condition. Because Lohan needs about two hours of makeup to transform herself into Taylor, the planned daytime scenes with her have been scrapped, with the producers and the director trying to film some nighttime scenes instead. “It’s a jigsaw puzzle,” Thompson said. But despite the crew’s best efforts, “there will be a production loss today, we are just trying to minimize the loss.” As his company, Larry A. Thompson Prods., is producing the movie, Thompson has been in touch with his insurance broker to figure out if the loss will be covered.
