Here is an update on the car crash that involved Mike Trout and several others…

Trout was uninjured in the three-car crash on the 55 freeway in Santa Ana., Calif., that occurred at 7:48 p.m. PT, according to information provided by the California Highway Patrol in a statement to USA TODAY Sports. The woman in a Chevrolet Sonic suffered “major injuries” and was transported to Orange County Global Medical Center in Tustin.

A hospital spokesperson was unable to provide an update on the status of the woman injured.

“Mike Trout was involved in a car accident earlier tonight,” Angels general manager Billy Eppler said in a statement released by the club. “I have spoken with Mike this evening and he feels fine. He is at home with his roommate and planning on traveling with the club to Seattle tomorrow afternoon. We will update as more information becomes available.”

Trout was traveling southbound on the 55 when traffic ahead of him came to a stop due to an unrelated accident, according to the CHP. Trout’s car swerved and the right-front of his his car collided with the rear bumper of the Sonic. The impact sent the compact car careening into a truck stopped ahead of it, before the Sonic came to a rest alongside a fence on the shoulder of the roadway.

Trout and the driver of the truck stopped to check on the well-being of the woman in the Chevrolet, according to the CHP.
