Will Ferrell was injured Thursday night when the SUV limousine in which he and others were riding was involved in an accident on a Los Angeles-area freeway.

Will Ferrell was rushed to hospital after being involved in a auto crash while he was travelling back from San Diego to Los Angeles on Thursday night. The "Daddy's Home 2" star was in a SUV that sideswiped and flipped after it was hit by another vehicle, said Rafael Reynoso, said a spokesman.

Ferrell's supervisor has not returned a request for comment. One of the patients was in critical condition, while the other three suffered minor injuries.

The statement from Ferrell's representatives added that the actor is "grateful for all the well wishes he and his friends are receiving".

The two-vehicle crash occurred just south of Alicia Parkway about 10:55 p.m., Orange County Fire Authority Larry Kurtz said. Witnesses told TMZ that the actor was conscious and talking on his phone when he was loaded into the ambulance. The driver of a Toyota veered into the HOV lane and collided "into the rear end of the Lincoln Navigator", said Officer Rafael Reynoso of the California Highway Patrol.

Ferrell appeared at a function for the online comedy channel he co-founded, "Funny or Die", near San Diego earlier that night. The driver of the 2007 vehicle was also unhurt.

Comedian and actor Billy Eichner, who also appeared at the event, tweeted about the crash on Friday. "Thoughts and love out to Will Ferrell and his friends and family today", he wrote.
