Trout 'feels fine' after car accident on freeway

Angels star Mike Trout was uninjured in a traffic accident on the 55 Freeway in Tustin, Calif., on Wednesday night.

A major accident requiring a firefighter rescue for a woman trapped in her car occurred around 9 p.m. PT on the freeway, according to Trout's vehicle and two other cars collided while trying to avoid the initial crash, the California Highway Patrol told the website, which reported that Trout was not charged in the crash.

"Mike Trout was involved in a car accident earlier tonight," general manager Billy Eppler said in a statement released by the Angels. "I have spoken with Mike this evening and he feels fine. He is at home with his roommate and is planning on traveling with the club to Seattle tomorrow afternoon. We will update as more information becomes available."

Trout was given the day off Wednesday in the Angels' 3-0 victory over the Reds in Anaheim. The club opens a three-game series in Seattle on Friday after an off-day on Thursday.
