Will Ferrell is back!
The actor has made his first appearance barely a week after he was involved in a serious car accident in California.
In case you missed it: last week, the actor was one of three passengers in the chauffeur-driven SUV which was returning from a “Funny or Die” event in San Diego. Their vehicle was sideswiped by an oncoming Toyota, causing the SUV to hit the centre divider and flip over on the expressway at about 10:55 p.m. And from the footage obtained by the police, Ferrell was seen talking on a cell phone while being loaded into an ambulance.
Luckily the actor was not seriously injured. However, a 27-year-old woman, who was also in the SUV, was seriously injured. She reportedly was not wearing a seatbelt.
Speaking with TMZ much later, his representative said the actor had been released from a nearby hospital and did not suffer any “significant injury.”
Now, Ferrell has returned to work.
E! News reports that he stopped by We Day California, “a forum or an unparalleled event bringing together world-renowned speakers, A-list performers, and tens of thousands of youth to celebrate a year of action that transformed communities and changed lives.”
Other stars who spoke at the forum include Selena Gomez and Jennifer Aniston.
