Jared Padalecki on the mend after surviving ‘very bad car accident,’ his former co-star Jensen Ackles tells Supernatural convention crowd in New Jersey

Jared Padalecki’s condition is improving after surviving what his Supernatural co-star Jensen Ackles called a ‘very bad car accident.’ 

The actor, 39, missed a Supernatural fan convention this weekend because of the incident. 

‘I miss my buddy,’ Ackles, 44, told the crowd on Sunday. ‘[Padalecki] sends his love. I spoke with him yesterday. He’s sad he can’t be here.’

The Smallville actor then told the gathered crowd that the Gilmore Girls star was going to be alright before sharing more specific details. 

‘He was in a very bad car accident,’ he said. ‘He wasn’t driving. He was in the passenger seat, and he’s lucky to be alive.’

The Rust actor continued, ‘That airbag packs a punch. He’s like, “I feel like I went 12 rounds with [Mike] Tyson.” But he is doing OK, and he’s moving around. But yeah, [it was a] really, really bad car accident. Just keep him in your thoughts, send him some love if you get a chance on social and he’ll be back with us soon.’
