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.

Ferrell is "doing well", and has been released from the hospital with no significant injuries. The driver of the Toyota was unharmed.

The actor, who's believed to have been inside the vehicle with three completely different people, sustained minor accidents when a Toyota veered into their lane on Interstate 5 and hit the SUV's rear correct side. A witness told TMZ that a woman in his vehicle had apparently been more seriously injured, "and was bleeding profusely on the scene".
