“Supernatural” actor and Austinite Jared Padalecki is in recovery after a recent car wreck.

The incident was brought to light by Padalecki’s costar, Jensen Ackles, who announced the crash in a live event saying “he’s lucky to be alive."

Ackles compared the 39-year-old actor’s crash to "12 rounds with [Mike] Tyson."

Little else is known about the incident but Padalecki thanked fans for the “outpouring of love,” and said he hoped to return to filming “later this week” alongside a photo with his daughter.

Padalecki closed the post with #SPNFamily #WalkerFamily, recognizing his fans. A longtime Austin resident, Padalecki also stars as Cordell Walker in The CW’s locally-filmed “Walker” with his wife, Genevieve Padalecki.
