‘Supernatural’ star Jared Padalecki (above right) is ‘lucky to be alive’ after a horrific car accident, his co-star has revealed.
Jensen Ackles, who plays Padalecki’s brother on the show, explained his co-star’s absence at a fan convention over the weekend.
“He sends his love,” Ackles said. “I spoke to him yesterday, and he’s sad he can’t be here.”
“He was in a very bad car accident. He wasn’t driving, he was in the passenger seat, and he’s lucky to be alive. And not only that, but he’s at home recovering which — the fact that he’s not in a hospital right now is blowing my mind because I saw the car.”
Ackles continued: “That airbag packs a punch. He’s like, ‘I feel like I went 12 rounds with Tyson’. But he is doing okay, and he’s moving around. But yeah, [it was a] really, really bad car accident.
“Just keep him in your thoughts, send him some love if you get a chance on social and he’ll be back with us soon.”
