BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Lindsay Lohan has settled a lawsuit filed by a woman who was chased by the actress in a pre-dawn car pursuit in 2007.

Court records show Lohan settled the case Wednesday with Tracie Rice, who claimed she was traumatized and lost a well-paying job because of the incident, which resulted in one of Lohan's arrests for drunken driving.

No details of the settlement were released.

The case has been frequently delayed because of Lohan's ongoing legal troubles, which have included rehab and jail sentences. The 24-year-old actress surrendered on Thursday on a probation violation and is expected to serve 35 days on house arrest.

Lohan's civil attorney, Ed McPherson wrote in an email that the actress "is very pleased to put this unfortunate event behind her."
