A representative for the California Highway Patrol confirmed news of the crash.
According to the incident report, the actor was one of three passengers in an SUV that flipped over on the 5 Freeway around 11 p.m. The vehicle turned over after another driver veered left and hit Ferrell’s vehicle. All three passengers, as well as Ferrell’s driver, were also hospitalized.
A representative for Ferrell told TMZ that he was released from the hospital and did not suffer any significant injuries. The California Highway Patrol also confirmed that alcohol and drugs were not a factor in the collision.
Ferrell was apparently coming back from San Diego, where he appeared Thursday in a Funny or Die event playing his iconic character Ron Burgundy.
