Actor and comedian Will Ferrell was seen being loaded into an ambulance after getting into a rollover crash on a Los Angeles-area freeway on Thursday night.
Ferrell, 50, suffered minor injuries in the crash, according to the Associated Press. He has since been released. In all, three men in a Lincoln SUV suffered minor injuries and a 27-year-old has reportedly suffered injuries deemed critical.
Footage from OnScene.TV showed the star talking to a firefighter after the crash. It also showed the SUV on its side, its windows broken. Glass was all over the road.
A California Highway Patrol report obtained by the Associated Press indicated that a 2007 Toyota hit the back of the 2017 SUV while trying to merge into a lane on Interstate 5. At some point, the driver lost control and hit a divider.
“The driver of the Toyota apparently had fallen asleep and struck the rear end of the (Lincoln) Navigator causing it to hit the center divider wall,” Officer Rafael Reynoso told the Register.
Everyone who was injured was in the SUV. The driver of the Toyota was not hurt, according to Fox 11 Los Angeles.
Ferrell was in San Diego on Thursday for a “Funny or Die” event where he dressed up as “Anchorman” character Ron Burgundy. The event was intended to encourage people to register to vote. He was coming back from the event when the crash occurred.
No arrests were made as a result of the crash and it is not believed that alcohol was a contributing factor, according to Fox 11.
