GLENWOOD SPRINGS, Colo. — Actor James Woods said on Twitter that he was involved in a seven-car accident in Glenwood Canyon on Monday.

The actor, 68, posted a series of tweets about the crash, saying a driver going 75 mph spun out during an ice storm and caused the pileup on westbound Interstate 70 near Glenwood Springs.

Woods said he was driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee with four wheel drive when he hit the wall on the right side of the interstate, spun 180 degrees and hit the left wall.

No one died, but several people were injured. The actor said he was “banged up,” that his car was “wrecked” and that he also suffered a concussion.

“Every person I dealt with here in Colorado was just superb, professional and caring,” wrote Woods, who thanked the emergency responders, Colorado State Patrol troopers, AAA and doctors.

The Glenwood Springs Post Independent reported the accident happened near the Hanging Lake exit.
