Mission Viejo: Will Ferrell Hurt In Rollover Crash

04.12.2018 | 10:53 PM | MISSION VIEJO – Actor and comedian Will Ferrell was rushed to a hospital Thursday night after being involved in a serious two-car crash in Southern California.

The crash happened on I-5 Freeway when another car struck the vehicle Ferrell was riding in, the actor’s talent agency said.

Ferrell and colleague Andrew Steele were both taken to an Orange County hospital and have since been released without injuries, the United Talent Agency said in a statement Friday.

Ferrell’s longtime driver, Mark Thompson, and another colleague, Carolina Barlow, remain hospitalized in stable condition, the talent agency added.

Celebrity news site TMZ initially reported that the crash had caused Ferrell’s SUV to “spin and flip over.”

A representative for Farrell said Friday his vehicle had flipped on its side.

Video from the scene Thursday night showed a black SUV with its windows shattered and Ferrell conscious and talking on a phone as paramedics wheeled him into an ambulance on a stretcher.
