After his worrying accident, the actor made a public appearance looking fresh, making jokes, and making sure fans are not scared for him.


Less than a week after his recent accident, Will Ferrell made his first public appearance on Thursday, April 19, at the We Day California celebration at The Forum in Inglewood, California.

The American actor seemed to be in a good mood, joking onstage with child expert and frequent Ellen guest, presidential expert Macey Hensley.

According to Pop Culture, the two were just friendly chatting in front of the live audience while having a good time onstage.

Ferrell's car accident took place on Interstate 5 in Orange County back on August 12, as the SUV Ferrell was riding in was hit by a 22-year-old male driver who was heading north on the highway.


Counting the driver, Ferrell was one of four people in the car, which was struck on the left side and hit the center median. This caused it to overturn.

Ferrell and the other passengers were taken to a local hospital after the crash and the next day, a statement was put out by his reps at United Talent Agency in order to give fans an update on the crash his health.

'While traveling back to Los Angeles after hosting a voter registration event in San Diego, a car carrying Will Ferrell and three of his colleagues was struck on the freeway by another vehicle,' the statement reads.

Although Will and his colleague, Andrew Steele, were unhurt and were released from an Orange County hospital, the driver, Mark Thompson, and his other colleague, Carolina Barlow, are still hospitalized.


"Will is staying close by as his friends are being treated, and has expressed his deep gratitude to the first responders, who were immediately at the scene, and to the hospital team that took such great care of them. He's also grateful for all the well wishes he and his friends are receiving,' the statement reads.

Ferrell was attending a voter registration event earlier that evening hosted by comedy website Funny or Die, where he arrived as his Anchorman character, Ron Burgandy.
