Actor Will Ferrell was riding in an SUV that was involved in a two-vehicle crash on the northbound San Diego (5) Freeway in the Mission Viejo area, it was reported Friday.
The crash occurred about 10:55 p.m. Thursday north of La Paz Road, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The celebrity news website TMZ.com reported that Ferrell, 50, was riding in an SUV that “got flipped over” in the two-vehicle crash, and Ferrell, along with two other people, were taken to a hospital for treatment.
Ferrell was one of three passengers in the chauffeur-driven SUV, which, according to witnesses, was side-swiped by the other vehicle, TMZ reported.
Ferrell, the driver and another man riding in the 2017 Lincoln suffered minor injuries, and a woman riding in the Lincoln suffered “major” injuries, according to the CHP. The driver of the other vehicle, a 2007 Toyota, apparently was not hurt. No arrests were reported.
The actor was apparently on his way back from a “Funny or Die” event outside San Diego in which he appeared as Ron Burgundy.
