The celebrity news website TMZ.com reported that Ferrell, 50, was riding in an SUV that "got flipped over" in the two-vehicle crash, and Ferrell, along with two other people, were taken to a hospital for treatment.

Will Ferrell was rushed to the hospital this Thursday night after being involved in a brutal auto crash in Orange County, RadarOnline.com can confirm.

'Will and his colleague, Andrew Steele, were unhurt and have been released from an Orange County hospital.

'Will is staying close by as his friends are being treated, and has expressed his deep gratitude to the first responders who were immediately at the scene and to the hospital team that took such great care of them.

"While travelling back to Los Angeles after hosting a voter registration event in San Diego, a auto carrying Will Ferrell and three of his colleagues was struck on the freeway by another vehicle", the actor's rep said in a statement. The collision was reported shortly before 11 p.m. on the northbound 5 Freeway, just south of Alicia Parkway, according to the Orange County Fire Authority.

The driver and another man riding in the SUV suffered only minor injuries, while a female passenger suffered "major" injuries and was rushed to a trauma center.

It lost control and overturned as a result of the collision, leaving two other males inside with minor injuries and a 27-year-old woman - who the California Highway Patrol said was the only one not wearing a seat belt - in a critical condition. Alongside fellow amusing or Die co-creator Billy Eichner, Ferrell appeared at the Oceanside event as Ron Burgundy, the fictional 1970s newsman from his 2004 San Diego-based comedy "Anchorman". The outlet also says the driver of the Toyota walked away unharmed.

"Will and everyone are ok. Very scary but very thankful everyone is OK". "Thoughts and love out to Will Ferrell and his friends and family today", he wrote.
