After a car accident where Ferrell’s SUV flipped right over, the comedian/actor had to be rushed to the hospital by paramedics. The 50-year-old was supposedly riding in an SUV on Thursday night when it flipped during a two-car accident in California.
TMZ reported that his car was driving down the freeway in Orange County when another vehicle crashed into it from the side. The publication claimed two other people accompanied Will in the automobile.
As a result, all three people had to go to the hospital, but thankfully, Will was on the cell-phone while heading in for treatment so he must’ve been ok, in addition to the other two passengers who are doing well too.
A representative speaking on Will’s behalf said to the tabloid publication that he didn’t suffer any severe injuries and appeared to be in good health and spirit.
The comedian was returning from his part in the Funny Or Die event where he re-portrayed Ron Burgundy from Anchorman. It’s great to hear that the Get Hard alum is alright.
His contributions to cinema and comedy over the years have been tremendous, with Saturday Night Live kicking off his career before going on into Hollywood films like Old School, Austin Powers, A Night At The Roxbury, as well as Zoolander.
Over time, he began receiving more and more starring roles including in Elf. Notably, his performance in Old School garnered him critical acclaim.
Perhaps, his best role to date would be the 2008 film along with John C Reilly, Step Brothers. The film was a massive success earning around $128 million worldwide on a relatively small budget, other than the cost of its cast.
