"Succession" actor Alan Ruck was involved in a four-car collision in Los Angeles on Tuesday, which resulted in his pickup truck crashing into Raffallo's Pizza in Hollywood. Surveillance footage showed Ruck's electric Rivian truck rear-ending a car on La Brea Avenue, causing a chain reaction that led to the truck smashing into the restaurant. Photos and videos from the scene captured the extent of the damage.
Eyewitnesses reported feeling the building shake and initially fearing an explosion. Tim Ratcliff, who owns nearby restaurants, rushed to the scene to help and stated that Ruck immediately asked about the well-being of everyone else involved. Ruck remained at the site, speaking on his phone, as police assessed the situation.
According to LAPD Sgt. Hector Guzman, there were minor injuries reported among the individuals involved in the collision, but nothing life-threatening. Ambulances were dispatched for a 40-year-old woman and a 25-year-old man, while a 32-year-old man was hospitalized in an unknown condition.
None of the drivers involved in the crash were arrested for driving under the influence, and the investigation into the incident is ongoing. It remains unclear whether the unidentified man taken to the hospital was a pedestrian or inside one of the four vehicles at the time of the collision.
Alan Ruck is best known for his roles in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" (1986) and the HBO series "Succession." Ruck portrayed Connor Roy in "Succession" and was nominated for an Emmy as an Outstanding Supporting Actor for his performance.
The incident has gained attention due to Ruck's celebrity status and the dramatic footage of the truck crashing into the pizza parlor. However, it is important to note that the injuries sustained were reported to be minor and that the investigation is ongoing to determine the cause of the collision.
