HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES (KABC) — “Succession” and “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” actor Alan Ruck was reportedly involved in a multi-car collision in Hollywood on Tuesday that sent his truck crashing into a pizzeria.

Footage appeared to show Ruck talking on his cellphone at the scene of the crash.

Shortly after 9 p.m. Tuesday, several callers reported a crash involving multiple vehicles, one of which slammed into a building in the 1600 block of La Brea Avenue, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department said.

News video from the scene showed the front end of the truck plowed into the building that houses Raffallo’s Pizza, near the intersection of La Brea and Hollywood Boulevard. Two heavily damaged sedans were seen in the middle of the intersection; one of them had apparently been rear-ended before hitting the driver’s side of the other car.

The Los Angeles Fire Department said a 32-year-old man was transported to a hospital in unknown condition. The LAPD spokesperson said an ambulance was requested for two people: a 40-year-old woman who complained of pain in her arm, and a 25-year-old man who sustained unknown injuries.

Los Angeles firefighters responded after a truck slammed into a pizza shop in Hollywood on Tuesday, Oct. 31, 2023.


A police report was taken at the scene, according to the LAPD. No citations or arrests were announced.

The Fire Department’s Urban Search and Rescue team assessed the building and the truck before the rear of the vehicle was hooked to a chain and pulled out of the structure. Department of Building and Safety officials also responded to the crash site, to determine the condition of the building for occupancy, the Fire Department said.

Whether drugs or alcohol played a role in the collision was unknown, police said. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
