L.A. Angels superstar Mike Trout was involved in a bad crash in Orange County after his game Wednesday night -- but miraculously, the outfielder was NOT hurt.
The crash occurred around 8:50 PM -- after the Angels defeated the Reds in Anaheim.
Officials say 4 cars were involved in the wreck on the 55 Freeway -- very close to the Angels Stadium -- and one car was wrecked so badly, rescuers needed the Jaws of Life to cut one person out their vehicle.
Trout was driving a black Mercedes, which suffered pretty significant damage to the front passenger side.
Two people were hospitalized in the wreck. Unclear how serious their conditions are.
Trout appeared to be okay ... with Angels general manager Billy Eppler issuing a statement saying, "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."
The California Highway Patrol is currently investigating the cause of the crash.
In footage obtained by Fox 11's Liz Habib, Trout appears relatively calm at the scene.
