Supernatural star Jared Padalecki was in a bad car accident recently, and his costar, Jensen Ackles, said he’s “lucky to be alive.”
At the Creation Entertainment’s Supernatural Official Conventions on Sunday (April 24th), Ackles addressed Padalecki’s absence, saying he was “sad he can’t be here.”
“I don’t know if you guys know what’s going on. 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,” Ackles said.
He continued, “And not only that, but he’s a home recovering which — the fact that he’s not in a hospital right now is blowing my mind because I saw the car.”
He said the crash left his co-star feeling like he had “gone 12 rounds with [Mike] Tyson.”
“Keep him in your thoughts, send him some love if you get the chance on social and he’ll be back with us soon,” Ackles added.
