UPDATE: Will’s representative tells TMZ that the comedian has been released from the hospital and is doing well.
Will was riding in the chauffeur-driven SUV with three other people, plus the driver, on the way back from a Funny or Die event near San Diego, CA. Witnesses claim that the vehicle was side-swiped by another one at around 11:00 PM; Will and the two other passengers were then rushed to a hospital for treatment. One witness told the site that a woman in the SUV was “seriously injured,” and “was bleeding profusely on the scene.”
Earlier that day, the comedian appeared at an event called Glam Up The Midterms, which aimed to get millennials involved with the midterm elections, along with Billy Eichner. The pair held a conversation about the upcoming primary in CA-49, and Will appeared in character as Ron Burgundy from Anchorman.
