The shocking aftermath of the epic freeway flip was caught on camera—and shows the comedian being put in an ambulance on a stretcher.
The video also shows the badly wrecked Lincoln Navigator Ferrell was a passenger in on its side after the dramatic rollover-- with police and firemen walking around it. Eventually, authorities flipped the vehicle to its upright position, and onlookers could see that the entire windshield was shattered after the crash.
As Radar previously reported, the Elf star was rushed to the hospital—incredibly only with minor injuries-- after being involved in the serious car accident on Thursday night, April 12. The crash left four people hospitalized, including Ferrell, 50.
The police report obtained by Radar from Department of California Highway Patrol stated that Ferrell was the passenger of a 2017 Lincoln Navigator that was involved in the two-car collision at 10:50pm on an Orange County, Calif. freeway.
“2007 Toyota was traveling on I-5, north of La Paz road, in the #2 lane,” the collision report read. “Ferrell’s vehicle was traveling next to the 2007 Toyota in the HOV-lane.”
For an “unknown reason,” the 2007 Toyota “veered into the HOV lane” and “struck the right rear of” the car Ferrell was in.
“The 2017 Lincoln lost control, hit the center divider and overturned,” the report explained.
“All occupants in the Lincoln navigator (4 including driver) were taken to nearby hospitals,” the Public Information Officer told Radar of the crash.
“One of the passengers, a 27-year-old woman, was taken to the hospital with major injuries,” the PIO noted.
The police report explained how the woman was not wearing her seatbelt.
The PIO added, “Alcohol and drugs were not a factor. No citations were given and no arrests were made.”
Ferrell , who is married with three kids, was seen talking on his cell phone while being loaded into the ambulance in the video.
The actor was on his way back from a “Funny or Die” event, but this was no laughing matter and Ferrell looked somber as he talked to someone on the phone and then to the EMTs who were helping him on the scene.
