LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lindsay Lohan has accepted a plea deal in a misdemeanor car crash case that includes 90 days in a rehabilitation facility.

The actress pleaded no contest Monday to reckless driving and lying to police who were investigating the accident involving the actress in June. A charge of obstructing officers was dropped.

A judge says Lohan will be sentenced to 90 days in rehab, 30 days of community labor and 18 months of psychological therapy.

The "Liz & Dick" star was on probation when her sports car crashed on Pacific Coast Highway while on her way to a film shoot.

The 26-year-old actress has been repeatedly sentenced to jail since 2007 when she was twice arrested for driving under the influence.
