Alan Ruck is thankful ‘no one was killed’ in truck accident

Alan Ruck is doing well after crashing his Rivian truck into a Los Angeles pizzeria on Tuesday.

The “Succession” star was spotted leaving a convenience store in Los Angeles on Thursday and politely answered a few paparazzi questions about the incident.

“I’m fine,” Ruck said in the video he received TMZ. “I’m fine and thank God no one was killed.”

Representatives for the actor did not immediately respond Friday to The Times’ requests for further comment.

On Halloween, Ruck’s electric truck crashed into the side of Raffallo’s Pizza in Hollywood. The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed to The Times that a crash occurred around 9 p.m. Tuesday at the intersection of La Brea Boulevard and Hollywood Boulevard. Four vehicles were involved in the crash and minor injuries were reported.

Los Angeles Public Information Officer Matthew Cruz told The Times on Friday that “there was no crime involved in this incident and no arrests have been made.”

Surveillance footage showed Rivian traveling south on La Brea approaching Hollywood Boulevard when he rear-ended a vehicle. The impact pushed the vehicle into the intersection, where it then collided with another vehicle. Rivian, meanwhile, continued in a southwesterly direction, clipping a separate car before crashing into the side of Raffallo’s Pizza. Photos show the cab of the truck penetrating the exterior of the building.

A 32-year-old man from one of the other vehicles was treated for non-life-threatening injuries, officials said KTLA-TV Channel 5. Ruck was not injured and was later seen on video talking to police at the scene, the local news station reported Thursday.

Law enforcement officials also told KTLA that no charges will be filed as a result of the multi-car crash and that no foul play was suspected.

Speaking to the paparazzi on Thursday, Ruck, 67, admitted he limps and wears a brace on his left knee. However, he said, they were unrelated to the crash.

“This is not by accident,” Ruck said. “That’s because I’m getting old.”

He also told videographers that he knows the recent crash has been compared to the famous Ferrari crash scene from the 1986 film, “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”

Incidentally, another Ruck injury made it to a 2021 episode of “Succession.” The actor tore his shoulder while shoveling snow, and the cast he wore during his recovery was written in a season 3 episode set at Kendall Roy’s 40th birthday party. Ruck’s Connor Roy claims he crashed at his ranch and annoys his younger brother by refusing to take off his coat during the lavish feast.
