Update: Police have revealed that no drugs or alcohol played a part in the role. Will Ferrell’s agent has also reached out to the press to reveal that Will Ferrell has been released from hospital. Fortunately he has suffered no significant injuries as a result of the collision.
Will Ferrell has been rushed to hospital after he was involved in a two car collision that resulted in his SUV being flipped. The accident occurred around 11pm in Orange County on the I-5 freeway and was caused by a Toyota that sideswiped Ferrell’s vehicle resulting in the horrific wreck. Witnesses report seeing Ferrell being carried away on a stretcher while speaking on his phone. While it’s not clear what the extent of his injuries are, witnesses say he was the least injured of those present with one woman, reportedly having been in the car with Ferrell, being carried away while “bleeding profusely”.
