“I don’t know if you guys know what’s going on,” Ackles said of Padalecki. “He was in a very bad car accident. He wasn’t driving, he was in the passenger seat, and he’s lucky to be alive.

CNN has reached out to Padalecki’s representative for comment.

“He’s home recovering, which the fact that he’s not in a hospital right now is blowing my mind because I saw the car,” Ackles added.

Padalecki took to Twitter to apologize for missing the event but did not mention the accident.

Padalecki and Ackles starred as on-screen brothers on “Supernatural” between 2005 and 2020.
