Actor James Woods survived a multiple-car crash in Colorado's Glenwood Canyon Monday, walking away with only a mild concussion.

The Academy Award-nominated actor, 68, posted several Twitter messages about the incident, in which he apparently swerved to avoid a pileup and just barely managed to stop his Jeep Grand Cherokee from going over a 100-foot drop into the Colorado River, according to The Denver Post.

The accident occurred in the westbound lane of Interstate 70 in Glenwood Canyon, the newspaper noted.









"The three-time Emmy award winner tweeted on Monday that a man driving '75+ in an ice storm' spun out of control," The Guardian reported. "In a dramatic report of events, Woods said he 'hit right wall to avoid him, spun 180, hit left wall sliding backwards going 60 mph.'"

Woods sent out a final tweet, letting people know that he was driving again after the scary accident.



Fans wished the actor well after the accident on social media.
