The recently struggling "Mean Girls" actress, who lately has been working to fulfill the community-service and therapy obligations stemming from her probation-violation case, is being sued by a woman who claimed Lohan ran her down in the street.

Nubia Del Carmen Preza claims that, on September 1, 2010, at approximately 4 p.m., Lohan came bearing down on Preza on Alta Loma Road in West Hollywood, striking her with her Maserati.

In the suit -- filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday -- Preza claims to have suffered "[d]isabling and serious personal injuries, pain, suffering and anguish" as a result of the alleged accident, and she wants Lohan to pay.
Preza is seeking general damages, medical and incidental expenses, compensation for loss and impairment of earnings, court costs and interest.
Preza's claim is dramatic -- perhaps a little too dramatic, according to TMZ. Back when the incident allegedly occurred, the web site called an account of the run-in into question, noting that no police report had been filed, and that the witnesses to the accident -- a pair of paparazzi, one of whom was on his first day on the job -- chose to sell their video of the supposed incident rather than inform the police.
Black & White Car Rental and 10 other anonymous defendants are named in the suit.
Lohan's spokesperson had no comment for TheWrap.
