Jensen Ackles shares his Supernatural co-star Jared Padalecki is recovering from a car accident

Jensen Ackles announced that his Supernatural co-star Jared Padalecki is recovering after a recent car accident. In footage taken from a panel on April 24, The Boys star, 44, told fans that the Walker actor, 39, would be unable to join him onstage at their hit CW show's weekend-long convention in East Brunswick, because he was "in a very bad car accident." It can be confirmed that Jared is recuperating at home and doing well. While Jensen did not confirm the date that the car crash took place, the actor shared that Jared "wasn't driving, he was in the passenger seat" at the time that it occurred and that there were thankfully "no fatalities" as a result. "He's lucky to be alive," Jensen said. "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." Jensen shared that his close friend – who he starred alongside for 15 seasons on the CW show – was "recovering" and "sends his love" amidst his journey to return to full health.
