A judge yesterday order Lindsay Lohan to stand trial in March for allegedly lying to cops about a car crash.

Lohan appeared in Los Angeles court Wednesday after her lawyer sent a later saying she would miss the date because she was sick, but she reportedly got spooked that she would face an arrest warrant if she didn't show.

During the hearing, Judge Stephanie Sautner set a date of March 18 for Linz to go to trial over charges that she fibbed to cops about whether she was driving her Porsche when it crashed in June in Santa Monica, Calif. She will also have a hearing to determine whether the crash violated her probation.

"Glad to see you're feeling better," Sautner quipped in court.

Lohan pleaded not guilty to three misdemeanor charges of reckless driving, lying to police and obstructing police when she said her assistant was driving the car when it rammed into a truck.

Lohan, 26, didn't speak to the media when she left court. Her rep didn't respond to a request for comment.
