Amy Graves/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Lindsay Lohan was hospitalized after her Porsche collided with an 18-wheeler, according to ABC News affiliate KABC.

Santa Monica police Sgt. Richard Lewis told KABC that Lohan rear-ended a dump truck while driving on the Pacific Coast Highway this afternoon.

According to ABC News affiliate WPLG-TV in Miami, Kingston collided with the bridge that connects Miami Beach's Palm Island to the MacArthur Causeway around 6 p.m.  Upon impact, the 21-year-old singer and a female passenger were ejected from the watercraft and landed in the water, said Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission spokesman Jorge Pino.

Both Kingston, who's known for his hits "Beautiful Girls" and "Fire Burning," and the passenger were hospitalized with injuries.
