"He's lucky to be alive," Ackles told fans. "And not only that, but he's at home recovering, which -- the fact that he's not even in a hospital right now is blowing my mind because I saw the car."

"He's recovering. He sends his love," he added. "He's doing OK. He's moving around."

Ackles said Padalecki was a passenger in the car and that there were no fatalities in the crash.

E! News confirmed Padalecki is recuperating at home and doing well.

Padalecki had sent love to fans in a tweet Thursday.

"Hey #SpnFamily! Sorry to miss y'all in NYC this weekend. Thank you and the #WalkerFamily for all the love and support. CAn't wait to see y'all again," he wrote.

Padalecki and Ackles played brothers Sam and Dean Winchester on Supernatural, which had a 15-season run on The WB/CW from 2005 to 2020.

Ackles and his wife, Daneel Ackles, are developing the prequel series The Winchesters, which centers on Sam and Dean's parents. Padalecki said in June 2021 that he was "gutted" to be not included in the project.
