Ferrell, 50, was a passenger in an SUV that overturned during a two-car accident late Thursday in Orange County, according to an accident report from the California Highway Patrol.
According to the accident report, Ferrell’s vehicle was struck when another car veered into its lane. Ferrell’s SUV then struck the center divider median and subsequently overturned.
On Thursday night, Ferrell appeared at a Funny or Die event in San Diego called Glam Up the Midterms. He appeared as his “Anchorman” character Ron Burgundy alongside Billy Eichner, who hosted the evening.
Ferrell, best known for playing anchorman Burgundy and various other “Saturday Night Live” characters, was reportedly returning from that event at the time of the accident.
The statement from Ferrell’s representatives added that the actor is “grateful for all the well wishes he and his friends are receiving.”
