Actor Jared Padalecki was involved in a car crash last month in Texas, and details about the crash are being released, according to a peace officer’s crash report into the incident obtained by Fox News Digital.

New information has emerged about the crash that occurred outside of Austin city limits in Travis County.

The report said the ‘Supernatural’ actor, 39, was one of four individuals inside a white Tesla Model Y compact SUV when the vehicle – moving at a ‘dangerous speed’ – sped left turn before sliding “on the fronts of two driveways,” jumping over a “stone and concrete retaining wall” and hitting a large steel utility pole, where it came to rest after turning toward the right.

The accident report says the vehicle, which was being driven by Jared’s cousin Jeremy Padalecki, slid over the wall and ‘continued to roll over vegetation at the top of the retaining wall’ before coming into contact with the electric pole, causing the Tesla to spin past.

The terrain diagram provided by the Texas Department of Transportation appears to indicate that the Tesla mis-navigated the turn before the driver attempted to overcorrect in order to avoid or lessen the impact into the wall.

The report does not say whether drugs or alcohol are believed to have played a role in the single-car accident. Texas police did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
