His former “Supernatural” co-star, Jensen Ackles had revealed the news with Padalecki’s permission over the weekend.
“I don’t know if you guys know what’s going on,” Ackles said of Padalecki. “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.
Padalecki was supposed to attend the event as well over the weekend.
“He’s home recovering, which the fact that he’s not in a hospital right now is blowing my mind because I saw the car,” Ackles added.
Padalecki and Ackles starred as on-screen brothers on “Supernatural” between 2005 and 2020.
