Jared Padalecki’s co-star on the hit series ‘Supernatural’ recently said his friend was lucky to be alive after a terrible car accident. Jared missed a scheduled appearance at a convention in New Jersey, where Ackles told the audience about his life-threatening crash. Now, more details have emerged about what happened in the wreck.
Police reports obtained by TMZ show that the Tesla Padalecki was riding in took a turn too fast. The car then jumped over a concrete wall and crashed into a utility pole. The Texas Department of Transportation’s accident report stated speed was the main factor in the accident.
The driver was said to be Jared Padalecki’s cousin, Jeremy Padalecki. Two other passengers were in the car at the time of the incident. The driver was said to be the most seriously injured.
Jared gave fans an update on his health last week. The actor said he is doing better and hopes to get back to the set soon. The condition of the other passengers is not known.
Jeremy Padalecki was cited for speeding in the accident. There were no other charges, including potential DUIs. This was just a case of going too fast and losing control of the car.
It is great to hear that Jared Padalecki is on the mend. There was a great deal of concern over his condition when he didn’t show up for the convention. It sounds like he will make a full recovery.
