Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout was uninjured after being involved in a car accident following Wednesday's 3-0 home win over the Cincinnati Reds.

"I have spoken with Mike this evening, and he feels fine. He is at home with his roommate and is planning on traveling with the club to Seattle tomorrow afternoon. We will update as more information becomes available," Angels general manger Billy Eppler said in a statement.

A 27-year-old woman was sent to the hospital as a result of the crash, according to Scott Schwebke of the Orange County Register. Emergency personnel needed to use the Jaws of Life to remove one person from their vehicle. The extent of that person's injuries are unknown at this time.

Trout said he felt fine on Friday, per Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register. 

"It was scary," Trout said, per Fletcher. "It could have been a lot worse." 

The California Highway Patrol is still investigating the cause of the crash, which happened at 8:50 p.m. PT. CBS Los Angeles captured a photo of Trout, seemingly uninjured, speaking with a police officer at the scene:

Trout, 25, it hitting .319/.436/.562 with 25 home runs and 84 runs batted in this season. The Angels have an off day Thursday before playing the Seattle Mariners on Friday. Sitting well out of playoff contention at 59-74, the team will likely proceed with caution if Trout has any problems after the accident.
