Billy Bob Thornton was reportedly rushed to hospital in Los Angeles on Friday (30Oct15) after suffering a head injury in a car crash.

Billy Bob Thornton was reportedly treated in hospital on Friday (30Oct15) after a car accident.

The 60-year-old actor was travelling as a passenger in a vehicle that collided with another in West Hollywood, according to

Following the incident, which occurred at around 6.45am, Billy Bob apparently began complaining of head pain.

Paramedics then decided to take the actor to the local Cedars-Sinai Medical Center to get checked over.

A representative for the actor downplayed the accident, telling the outlet Billy Bob was encouraged to visit the hospital by the paramedics as a cautionary measure.

However, after being given the all clear, Billy Bob returned to the set of his latest project later on the same day.

Further details of the accident have yet to be revealed.

Billy Bob has been working hard on various projects in recent months, including the political satire movie Our Brand is Crisis.

The film, which focuses on the idea of election rigging, was co-produced by George Clooney.

But Billy Bob insists that despite its plot, no one involved in the making of the movie ever expected it to have a political impact.

“I think that films can be important, but sometimes they can be more important on a personal level than they can be on a global level in shaking up politics,” Billy Bob told the Toronto Sun newspaper. “I mean, there are many movies made about very broad political and social topics and you didn’t particularly see the world change because of them.”
