A statement issued by Ferrell's agency to US Weekly stated that the Step Brothers actor was one of three passengers riding in the chauffeured SUV at the time of the accident.

Actor Will Ferrell was taken to hospital late Thursday night after the comedy star was involved in a vehicle accident in Orange County, Calif. Ferrell was one of the three passengers in the vehicle. A Toyota had sideswiped the right rear of Ferrell's SUV, causing the vehicle "to spin and flip over", the tabloid wrote.

The two-vehicle crash occurred just south of Alicia Parkway about 10:55 p.m., Orange County Fire Authority Larry Kurtz said.

It is unclear what injuries Will suffered, but he seemed OK as firefighters and paramedics arrived to the scene close to midnight on Thursday - bystanders saw him talking on his phone.

Ferrell had been in San Diego on Thursday for an event for the website amusing or Die, along with comedian Billy Eichner, where he appeared as Anchorman character Ron Burgundy and encouraged people to register to vote ahead of the midterm elections.

Ferrell and one other passenger came out of the wreckage "unhurt" and have now been released from hospital, according to statement from the actor's representatives. California Highway Patrol spokesman, Rafael Reynoso, told The Hollywood Reporter, there is no evidence of alcohol or drugs in the crash. Ferrell reportedly sustained minor injuries, although it's not clear exactly what.
