Lindsay Lohan was driving the car at the time of her crash, her assistant has claimed.

The troubled actress has always claimed she wasn't behind the wheel of the car at the time of the accident on Los Angeles' Pacific Coast Highway in June and police were conspiring against her.

However, when officers interviewed her assistant Gavin shortly after the crash - at the hospital where Lindsay was being treated - and according to gossip website, he told police the 'Liz & Dick' star Lindsay was driving.

Gavin's statement backs up the account of the truck driver Lindsay hit, who also claimed he saw Lindsay behind the wheel.

However, the 26-year-old actress believes Los Angeles cops have a ''vendetta to bring her down'' after they are pushing for her to be jailed for lying about her the crash.

Lindsay is ''terrified'' of going back to jail because Judge Stephanie Sautner has told her she will violate her current probation if she breaks the law again.

She reportedly told friends: ''One car accident could ruin everything for me.''

Lindsay is on probation since being found guilty of stealing a necklace in July 2011, for which she was sentenced to 120 days in prison and 480 hours of community service, and is telling pals she has since done everything right to abide by the law.
