Alan Ruck is thankful that no one was killed in a truck accident
Alan Ruck is in good condition after crashing his Rivian truck into a Los Angeles pizzeria on Tuesday.
The “Succession” star was spotted on Thursday leaving a convenience store in Los Angeles and graciously answered some photographers’ questions about the incident.
“I’m fine,” Rock said in the footage obtained by TMZ. “I’m fine, thank God no one was killed.”
Representatives for the actor did not immediately respond Friday to The Times’s requests for further comment.
On Halloween, Ruck’s electric truck crashed into the side of Raffallo’s Pizza in Hollywood. The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to the Times that the accident occurred around 9 p.m. on Tuesday at the intersection of La Brea Street and Hollywood Boulevard. The accident caused four vehicles to collide, and the accident also resulted in minor injuries.
“There was no crime involved in this incident and no arrests have been made,” Matthew Cruz, LAPD public information officer, told the Times on Friday.
Surveillance footage showed a Rivian vehicle traveling south on La Brea Street and approaching Hollywood Boulevard when it was struck from behind by a vehicle. The collision pushed the car into the intersection, where it then collided with another vehicle. Meanwhile, the Rivian continued in a southwesterly direction, striking a separate vehicle before crashing into the side of Raffallo’s Pizza. The pictures show the truck cab penetrating the exterior of the building.
A 32-year-old man who was from one of the other vehicles was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, officials told KTLA-TV Channel 5. Rack was not injured and was later seen on video speaking with police at the scene, the news station reported Thursday.
Law enforcement officials also told KTLA that no charges will be filed as a result of the multi-car crash and foul play is not suspected.
While speaking to photographers on Thursday, Rock, 67, admitted he was limping and wearing a brace on his left knee. But he said they had nothing to do with the incident.
“This is not from the accident,” Rock said. “That’s because I’m getting old.”
He also told videographers that he realizes the latest incident is being compared to the famous Ferrari crash scene from his 1986 film, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”
Incidentally, another injury to Ruck made its way into the 2021 episode of Succession. The actor tore his shoulder while shoveling snow and the cast he wore while recovering was written out in the season 3 episode set inside Kendall Roy’s 40th birthday party. Ruck’s Connor Roy claims he fell on his farm and upsets his younger brother by refusing to take off his coat during a lavish celebration.
