Los Angeles - Lindsay Lohan is being sued by a truck driver who she crashed into in June 2012.

The 27-year-old actress faces more legal trouble as cement truck driver James Johnson has filed a lawsuit against her, claiming he suffered numerous injuries and "great physical, mental and nervous pain" following the incident, according to TMZ.

Lindsay crashed her Porsche 911S into James' vehicle after speeding along the Pacific Coast Highway last summer. The star was trying to get to the Malibu, California, set of her TV movie 'Liz & Dick' and exceeded speed limits by driving at over 60 miles per hour.

The troubled actress - who was on probation for stealing a necklace at the time of the incident - originally claimed she wasn't driving the vehicle and told police officers her now former assistant, Gavin Doyle, was behind the wheel, however, the aide confessed to officials that Lindsay was indeed driving.

Lindsay later pleaded "no contest" when charged with lying to police and accepted a plea deal which saw her agree to 90 days of court-ordered rehab.

The starlet completed her rehab stint in early August and has taken proactive steps to get her life back on track, including seeking advice and guidance from talk show legend Oprah Winfrey.
