Will Ferrell got into a car crash on Thursday night which left him and the other two passengers desperate for help, after a vehicle side-swiped them and caused the SUV to flip over. Emergency first responders made it to the scene, and thankfully, everyone was ok.
A representative speaking on the behalf of the legendary comedian thanked those who helped him and the other riders. According to reports, the other person who drove the vehicle into Will’s fell asleep at the wheel.
A source who spoke with Just Jared explained, “Will is staying close to his family and friends right now and everything is ok. He’s just doing his thing like usual, and is thankful he’s still alive.”
Moreover, the Old School alum is supporting his other friends who were hurt in the accident. Mark Thompson, Ferrell’s driver, and his colleague, Carolina Barlow, are currently in the hospital but in stable condition.
The statement explained that the Elf star expresses his greatest and deepest gratitude to the medical professionals who ensured his safety.
Even though Ferrell was able to escape injury in the accident, his colleague, Carolina, didn’t have the same luck, as she was reportedly “bleeding profusely” according to TMZ.
As it was previously reported, Will was returning from a show at the Oceanside High School Performing Arts Center where he re-portrayed Ron Burgundy, the leading character of 2004’s Anchorman.
The film has since gone on to develop a cult following, mostly for the hilarious characters and witty dialogue. Ron Burgundy is now a legendary figure in popular culture.
