Will Ferrell is seen in an ambulance following a rollover crash

The Anchorman star was heading back to Los Angeles from a amusing or Die event in San Diego, California when the auto in which he was a passenger was hit by another vehicle on the Interstate 5 freeway in Aliso Viejo, according to TMZ.

Ferrell had been riding as a passenger in an SUV that was struck in the two-car incident.

Photos from the scene published by TMZ show a conscious Ferrell being loaded onto an ambulance by paramedics and speaking on his mobile phone. TMZ said it has reached out to Ferrell's representatives to get an update.

The other passengers identified as Ferrell's driver Mark Thompson and a woman Carolina Barlow remain in hospital, but are in a stable condition.

Ryan says Scalise backs McCarthy as next House speaker
In a statement at the time, the Freedom Caucus said they saw McCarthy as a "continuation of the status quo" from Boehner. McCarthy subsequently withdrew his bid, calling for a candidate that could get the support of all Republicans.

He is also "grateful for all the well wishes he and his friends are receiving".

Captain Larry Kurtz of the Orange County Fire Authority told the Press Association: "It happened at 10.55 last night on the northbound 5 freeway at Alicia Parkway". That sideswiping caused the SUV to veer into the center divider and caused the vehicle to overturn.

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 other vehicle wasn't believed to be hurt. He appeared as his "Anchorman" character Ron Burgundy alongside Billy Eichner, who hosted the evening. "Very scary but very thankful everyone is OK".

No joke: Comic actor Will Ferrell was hospitalized. "Thoughts and love out to Will Ferrell and his friends and family today", he wrote.
