Actor Alan Ruck, best known for his roles in “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” and “Succession,” was questioned by police after his truck crashed into other cars and eventually a pizzeria in Hollywood at night of Halloween, TMZ first reported.
The collision occurred around 9 p.m. at the busy intersection of La Brea Avenue and Hollywood Boulevard, on the west end of the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Surveillance video obtained by KTLA shows the rear of a Ruck’s Rivian car that was stopped at a traffic light, then rushed into another car before crashing into a wall at Raffallo’s pizza store.
“The whole building shook and I thought a bomb or something had gone off,” Tim Ratcliff, owner of several restaurants next to Raffalo’s, told KTLA’s Chris Wolfe.
Ratcliff says he rushed to help Ruck, but the actor was more concerned about the well-being of others.
“I asked him, ‘Are you okay?’ And the first thing out of his mouth was, “Is everyone (others) okay?” I think I hit someone. Is he okay?’
Ruck told Ratcliff he didn’t know what happened.
Footage from the scene shows Ruck, who played Cameron Frye in the classic 1986 John Hughes comedy “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off,” speaking to authorities at the scene, apparently unharmed.
Two other cars involved in the collision ended up in the middle of the intersection. A 32-year-old man was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department, and the building suffered minor structural damage.
The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
Ruck has starred in dozens of television and film productions over the decades and recently earned a 2023 Emmy nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series for his portrayal of Connor Roy in the hit HBO series “Inheritance”.
