Lindsay Lohan was charged with leaving the scene of an accident Wednesday morning after allegedly striking a pedestrian in Chelsea.

Police say the actress struck a man while parking her 2010 Porsche Cayenne in an alley between buildings on West 16th Street.

The man, in his 30s, complained of being struck. He was taken to Bellevue Hospital for knee injury.

Lohan went into a club at the adjacent Dream Hotel.

After police responded, she came out of the hotel and was arrested just before 2:30 a.m.

She was charged with leaving the scene of an accident.

She was taken to the 10th Precinct, issued a desk appearance ticket and released pending a later court date.

Alchohol is not suspected to be involved in the low-speed crash.

Two other men were in the vehicle with her at the time. They were not charged.

The Porsche is not registered to her.
