Looks like Amanda Bynes is giving Lindsay Lohan a run for her money as the worst driver in L.A.! The 26-year-old former child star, who got her start on Nickelodeon's "All That," was involved in another car accident Monday night, according to TMZ. This time, she was allegedly rear-ended, but the driver of the other vehicle claims the accident was caused after Bynes made a reckless maneuver while driving in L.A.'s San Fernando Valley at about 8 p.m. Police officers arrived on the scene, but no one was ticketed. The kicker? Bynes was driving a rental car because, you know, her BMW was being repaired after another fender bender.
Whatever body shop counts Bynes as a client has been busy in the last six months. She's been accused of being in three – count 'em, three! – hit and runs. She also managed to rack up a DUI charge after she allegedly clipped a cop car. Her bad driving spree began in March, when she drove away from a police officer who was writing her a ticket for talking on her cell phone while behind the wheel. Not the smartest move, especially when you have such a recognizable face! As a first time-offender, Bynes – who pleaded not guilty to the DUI charge in June – would face a maximum penalty of 48 hours in jail, three years of probation, a nine-month alcohol program, and the loss of her license for a year.
Bynes’ driving record isn't the only thing that's changed recently. The actress has started sporting bleach blonde hair and a more outrageous wardrobe, such as animal-print short shorts and an American flag top ... together. Earlier this month, she also deleted most of the information on her Twitter account, which she's used to defend herself in the past. "Hey @BarackObama ... I don't drink," Bynes, once an avid Twitter user, wrote in June. "Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don't hit and run. The end." Now visitors to her page will find only a pic of Bynes and a link to her WhoSay page.
Do you think Bynes can turn her life around before she becomes the next Hollywood horror story, or is it too late for that?
