Ferrell, who is most known for his comedies such as “Step Brothers” and “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby,” was released from a California hospital uninjured.
The crash, which took place at 10:55 pm Thursday night, left a female passenger in critical condition after it was reported she was “bleeding profusely,” according to the Daily Mail.
Two other men who were in the vehicle during the accident were taken to the hospital as a precaution and were soon released on their own accord. It’s currently unclear what relation the three other people in the car were to Ferrell.
TMZ obtained footage of the aftermath of the wreck, which showed Ferrell on a cell phone being loaded into the back of the ambulance.
Those on scene overhead a first responder saying: “Looks like we have one critical at this time who we’ve already got in an ambulance, and we’ve got one trapped in the car still.”
The person in the other car, which was reported to have been a sedan, was uninjured.
The New York Daily News reported Ferrel was coming back from a “Funny or Die” event in San Diego at the time of the crash.
In this event, Ferrell typically reprises his role from the critically acclaimed “Anchorman.” Ron Burgundy was one of Ferrell’s most well-known roles in Hollywood.
Ferrell has been known as a jokester. Earlier this week, the 50-year-old actor was seen courtside at the LA Lakers and Houston Rockets game wearing a fake green Masters jacket.
He was reportedly making fun of Patrick Reed, who wore his Masters jacket to a game the week before.
