Succession star involved in pizza restaurant truck crash

Succession star Alan Ruck has been involved in a multi-vehicle collision where a pick-up truck crashed into a Hollywood pizza restaurant.

Law enforcement officials told Sky News’ US partner, NBC News, that Ruck – who plays Connor Roy in the award-winning television series – had been in the crash on Tuesday night.

The 67-year-old actor, also famed for starring in the 1986 film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, was pictured at the scene in reports of the collision.

CBS News reported Ruck was allegedly driving the vehicle that smashed into the restaurant.

At least one person was taken to hospital after the Rivian R1T electric pick-up truck struck the back of a Tesla stopped at a red light, before smashing into a BMW waiting to make a left-hand turn.

The owner of the restaurant, Rafallo’s Pizzeria, described how he had to flee after almost getting hit by a vehicle.

“I heard the noise that the truck hit a couple of cars, I saw the car was coming down to me, I had to run and get down on the floor,” Walter Rosales told NBC LA.
