Comedian Will Ferrell was rushed to the hospital on Thursday night after a devastating auto accident in Orange County, CA.

The crash happened on Interstate 5 and caused the SUV that Ferrell was riding in to flip over, TMZ reported.

Ferrell was a passenger in a chauffeur-driven SUV that flipped over after being hit from the left rear by a Toyota. Ferrell, who starred on Saturday Night Life before beginning a lucrative film career, was rushed to the hospital and reportedly is doing well.

Ferrell had been traveling back from San Diego, where he appeared at a amusing or Die event as Ron Burgundy, his character from "Anchorman".

California Highway Patrol spokesman Rafael Reynoso told The Hollywood Reporter that neither alcohol nor drugs are suspected in the crash.

Ferrell has confirmed he's OK and did not suffer any significant injuries.

According to the statement, which was released by Ferrell's agency UTA, Ferrell and Andrew Steele were "unhurt" by the accident and promptly released from the hospital. One of the other passengers, according to a witness, was "bleeding profusely" at the scene.

The driving force of the Toyota was not hurt and the crash is being investigated.
