Lindsay Lohan is facing up to one year in jail for lying to police, according to a new report.

The 26-year-old star is accused of falsely telling investigators she was not driving during a serious car accident in Los Angeles this summer.

Prosecutors are preparing to file formal charges against her as early as this week.

According to RadarOnline, the Los Angeles City Attorney will ask a judge to sentence Lindsay to "significant time in jail" for violating her probation from an earlier necklace theft case.

"Prosecutors and cops think there is more than enough evidence for the judge to find Lindsay in violation of probation and are hopeful that this time, she will face the maximum penalty for lying to cops," a law enforcement source said.

It could mean up to one year behind bars for the star, the website reports.

Lohan totaled her rented Porche when she rear-ended an 18-wheel truck on the Pacific Coast Highway in June. No one was reported injured.

Multiple eyewitnesses told police she was driving at the time of the crash.

Lohan remains on probation after pleading guilty to misdemeanour theft and violation of probation for stealing a $2,500 necklace from a Los Angeles boutique in January 2011.
