Jensen didn't give any details of the crash, but did note that he "saw the car" after the accident.

"He's lucky to be alive," Jensen explained. 

"And not only that, but he's at home recovering which – the fact that he's not in a hospital right now is blowing my mind because I saw the car." 

Now, Padalecki is "recovering" at home.

"He is recovering. He sends his love. You know, that airbag packs a punch. He's like, ‘I feel like I went 12 rounds with [Mike] Tyson.’ But he's doing OK, and he's moving around."

Ackles encouraged the audience to send "The Walker" star love via social media.

"Just keep him in your thoughts. Send him some love if you get the chance on social and he'll be back with us soon."
