TMZ has a photo of the comic actor sitting up on a stretcher and talking on a smartphone while being loaded into an ambulance.

The actor was apparently leaving from a "Funny or Die" event that was held in San Diego. No one in Ferrell's vehicle appears to have suffered life-threatening injuries, and Ferrell himself has already been released from the hospital, his rep tells TMZ.

A statement issued by Ferrell's agency to US Weekly stated that the Step Brothers actor was one of three passengers riding in the chauffeured SUV at the time of the accident.

Ferrell and the two other passengers in his auto were all taken to the hospital.

Ferrell's longtime driver, Mark Thompson, and another colleague, Carolina Barlow, remain hospitalized in stable condition.

Film personalities, Opposition parties and people in general have expressed shock and demanded justice for eight-year-old Asifa. The BJP leader accused the Congress and the J&K National Panthers Party of "communalising the case".

"For undetermined reasons", the 22-year-old driver veered to the left and the left-front side of his Toyota hit the right rear of Ferrell's vehicle.

Ferrell suffered minor injuries and has since been released from hospital, his agent told People magazine.

The three men were taken to area hospitals to be checked for minor injuries, while the woman, who was bleeding profusely, was transported to a local trauma center, Kurtz said. The cause of the crash was under investigation by the CHP, who said alcohol and drugs do not seem to be a factor in the incident.

The crash happened on Interstate 5 and caused the SUV that Ferrell was riding in to flip over, TMZ reported.

Ferrell was at Oceanside High School earlier in the evening for a "Funny or Die" event - called "Glam Up the Midterms ..."
