At 4:30 p.m. today, there will be a press conference over Lindsay Lohan's 5:30 a.m. drunk driving crash that happened this morning on Sunset Blvd. She crashed her black Mercedes Convertible after hitting a curb and going into the bushes.

Lohan, 20, and two other people were in her 2005 Mercedes SL-65 when it crashed on Sunset Boulevard around 5:30 a.m., Sgt. Mike Foxen said. "She was cited and released because she has been admitted to a local hospital for minor injuries," Foxen said.

No one else was hurt and no other cars were involved, Foxen said. He did not have other details.

Officers went to the scene after receiving a 911 call about the accident, Foxen said. - AP

This is after a few Lilo (get it?) crashes in 2005, notably two that were supposedly caused by paparazzi photographers who chased her down -- one in West Hollywood in October of 2005 and one in May of the same year. The latter crash led to a state law about photographers.
