Will Ferrell makes first public appearance a week after car accident

Will Ferrell is back to making people laugh after giving fans quite a scare last week. 

The 50-year-old comedian hit the stage with Macey Hensley, who's known as the presidential whiz kid, for WE Day California at The Forum on Thursday in Inglewood, California. Ferrell -- who famously impersonates former president George W. Bush -- was dressed in a blue western shirt, jeans and sneakers.

His appearance at the event came just a week after he was hospitalized after being involved in a two-car crash in Southern California.

According to the California Highway Patrol, the accident occurred just before 11 p.m. on Interstate 5 in Orange County. Ferrell was riding in a 2017 Lincoln when the vehicle was struck by a 2007 Toyota. All four people in the Lincoln were taken to the hospital.

The Saturday Night Live alum's manager told Deadline that the driver of the Toyota had allegedly fallen asleep at the wheel. Following the incident, Ferrell was taken to Mission Hospital for unspecified injuries and was released not long after.
