All-star outfielder Mike Trout was unhurt and expected to be on the Los Angeles Angels team plane to Seattle Thursday, even though he was in an Orange County freeway crash that trapped the injured woman driver of another vehicle.

Trout was not hurt in the accident that occurred around 8:50 p.m. Wednesday on the Costa Mesa (55) Freeway in Tustin, according to Angels General Manager Bill Eppler. Trout apparently couldn’t avoid hitting the woman’s vehicle while trying to avoid another crash.

“I have spoken with Mike this evening and he feels fine,” Eppler said Wednesday night. “He is at home with his roommate and is planning on traveling with the club to Seattle.”

While Trout was unharmed, the woman driver of the vehicle Trout crashed into while attempting to avoid an accident ahead of him was taken to a hospital for her injuries, CBS2 reported. The impact of the crash trapped the woman in her vehicle and she was freed by firefighters.

Her condition Thursday was not disclosed.

Everyone involved in the crash remained at the scene.
