SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA - JULY 21: Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki speak at the "Supernatural" Special Video Presentation and Q&A during 2019 Comic-Con International at San Diego Convention Center on July 21, 2019 in San Diego, California.

At an official Supernatural convention in East Brunswick, New Jersey, on Sunday, Jensen Ackles said that his co-star Jared Padalecki is “lucky to be alive,” following a very serious car accident.

Ackles said, “I miss my buddy,” per People. “He sends his love. I spoke with him yesterday. He’s sad he can’t be here.” He noted that his former co-star had given him permission to share this information. “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. And not only that…he’s a home recovering which — the fact that he’s not in a hospital right now is blowing my mind because I saw the car.”

Ackles didn’t say when the accident occurred, but last week, Padalecki tweeted to fans that he wasn’t going to be at the event.
