Mischa Barton has come to an agreement in the lawsuit against her stemming from her infamous U-Haul crash in February 2017.
The 33-year-old actress reached a settlement deal with the homeowners association of an apartment building that she crashed into. The Blast reports that court documents show the building has filed a notice confirming the conditional settlement.
No details of the agreement have been revealed but Mischa has until June 25 to fulfill the terms of the deal, at which point the company will drop the lawsuit.

The Blast reports that a settlement hearing is scheduled for next week.
It comes after the website reported that the homeowners’ association for the Park Wellington in West Hollywood had been demanding to question the actress about her ‘level of intoxication and mental health at the time of the accident as impacted by her hospitalization for an apparent breakdown two weeks prior to the accident’.
Mischa was hospitalized for a mental evaluation in January 2017 after neighbors found her in her backyard in a distressed state rambling and screaming incoherently.
‘On the evening of the 25th, I went out with a group of friends to celebrate my birthday. While having drinks, I realized that something was not right as my behavior was becoming erratic and continued to intensify over the next several hours,’ Mischa later said in the statement to People.

‘I voluntarily went to get professional help, and I was informed by their staff that I had been given GHB. After an overnight stay, I am home and doing well…This is a lesson to all young women out there, be aware of your surroundings.’
Some weeks later Mischa rented a U-Haul truck with her then-boyfriend, Adam Spaw, and crashed it causing damage to the Park Wellington building.
They drove the truck into plaster covered support beams in a carport, causing severe structural damages that required repairs.
Park Wellington homeowners’ association sued the London-born, Manhattan-raised actress for $26,991.55 of damages in October 2017 after the insurance claim against Mischa’s ex-boyfriend, who rented the U-Haul, was denied.

At the Mischa denied all wrongdoing and blamed the building for the accident despite there being video of the accident.
Mischa was filmed stepping in front of the truck and exclaiming: ‘The whole things looks like it’s going to fall.’
‘Oh my god, this is really bad,’ she admitted.
‘Oh wait, and everything I own is in that U-Haul. Wait a second. What are we even going to do about this?’
U-Haul also sued the actress, claiming she abandoned the rented truck and the contents where it was jammed.
When she allegedly came to collect her possessions, staff refused to give them back until she paid them an outstanding bill of $5,828 for the truck rental, as well as the storage.
