Kristen Bell Reveals Recent Accident That Crushed All the Bones in Dax Shepard’s Hand

Dax Shepard is on the mend, and now Kristen Bell is opening up about what happened to his poor hand.

During an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Bell revealed he injured his hand during an “essential off-roading trip.”

"He was off-roading in the mountains and he had a buddy with him, but they were in separate off-road vehicles, and he got to an edge of a cliff,” she explained, saying that’s when things took a turn for the worst. Dax broke the “cardinal rule” of off-roading, she said: "You don't put your hands on the roll cage or outside the car at any time — that's the only chance of injury.”

Bell went on to say, “He was sitting on the edge of a cliff and he put his hand up just to look out and the weight of his arm tipped his Polaris RZR." The actress went on to make a rolling motion with her hands.

The “Frozen” star said, "You don't get injured when you're inside them, but I will tell you something, it did crush all the bones in his hand.”

Kristen said, "He didn't call me… He drove home, and the first thing he said when he walked through the door was, 'I just don't want to be in trouble.' Which is crazy because he's never in trouble with me. Like, I'll let you know if I'm disappointed in your actions, but I'm an adult, he's an adult, I can't get him in trouble."

Instead, she told him, “You're not in trouble, but it's not the smartest move we could have made.”

Last month, she recorded Dax as he pulled a pin out of his hand and posted the video on Instagram. She told Ellen, "You know Dax Shepard, you know he not only holds a degree in anthropology, but also dentistry, surgery, and so he called his doctor and he said, 'Hey, can I pull this pin out? Look at it,' and his doctor was like, 'Do it.' And he did. He is his own doctor.”
