Actor Will Ferrell was in a major accident overnight, after the SUV he was in was sideswiped by another car and flipped. Ferrell was one of three passengers, who were all hospitalized, along with the driver.
It appears Ferrell’s driver was not at fault.
UPDATE: Ferrell has been released from the hospital. He does not appear to have suffered serious injury. Police say alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash.
Will Ferrell has been a long-time critic of Republicans and of President Trump in particular. He campaigned for Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Will Ferrell was riding in an SUV that got flipped over in a 2-car accident Thursday night, and he — along with 2 others — were rushed to a hospital for treatment.
The wreck happened in Orange County on the I-5 freeway around 11 PM. Will was one of 3 passengers in the chauffeur-driven SUV. Witnesses tell us they got side-swiped by another car.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the SUV was sideswiped from the right rear by a Toyota, causing the SUV to spin and flip over. We’re told drugs and alcohol did not play a role in the accident. No one was arrested and cops continue investigating.
It’s unclear what injuries Will suffered … he was speaking on his phone as firefighters loaded up his stretcher to take him to the hospital. One witness said a woman in Will’s vehicle was more seriously injured, and was bleeding profusely on the scene.
Open beer bottles were seen on the road after the SUV was pulled upright. It’s not clear which vehicle they came out of … and police have not said if alcohol played a factor in the accident.
