James Woods Survives Seven-Car Accident, but the Details Are Terrifying
Actor James Woods survived a harrowing car accident on Monday in Glenwood Springs, Colorado.
Woods detailed the terrifying accident on Twitter, telling fans he was driving through the Rockies when another driver spun out doing 75 mph.
"I hit right wall to avoid him, spun 180, hit left wall sliding backwards going 60 mph," he wrote. "Huge drop 100 feet into river below, but the guardrail held. I managed to pull out and slide down out of oncoming traffic. Six car pileup."
The “Ray Donovan” star continued, “I slid below it. No deaths. Banged up. Car wrecked. Good to be alive. Glad everybody survived.”
The police told the 68-year-old he was only driver who didn't hit another vehicle during the crash “just walls.” While he's “happy to be alive,” Woods said he did suffer a “little concussion.”
He credited his Jeep for protecting him. “I was in my 4WD Jeep Grand Cherokee. That Jeep saved my life. An old tank.”
Woods also praised the authorities and tow truck drivers, “I tell you one thing, I admire the fire and police personnel and tow truck drivers out there in storms on dangerous roads. God bless them.”
