WATCH: “The Family Dog” creator and writer Bill Prady is in the hospital, according to the New York Times.
Prady, 51, is in critical condition after a car accident Saturday morning.
According to the Times, Prady “screams and yells” and is “wounded on the head.”
Prady and wife of five years, Kathy, were driving on Route 91 in North Carolina when they were struck by a car.
The couple had been driving on Highway 1, which is closed in both directions, for nearly two hours.
The accident left Prady with a severe head injury and a broken jaw.
The Times reports that Prady’s family is seeking $5 million in damages from the driver of the car.
Pradys brother-in-law, John Lutz, was also in the car, but Prady suffered more serious injuries.
“He has two broken ribs, and he’s been hit on the back of his head,” John Luttz told the Times.
“It’s a lot worse than I anticipated.”
The accident happened at a busy intersection, which was blocked by traffic.
The driver of that car is not facing any charges, and the couple is expected to recover.
Prays wife and children were not in the vehicle at the time of the accident.
“I am in intensive care,” Prady tweeted.
“Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.
I am very grateful for all the prayers and thoughts.
I’m in very good spirits and will make a full recovery.”
In a statement, Pradies sister, Jennifer, said that she and her husband were “very shaken up” by the accident, and that the family was praying for Prady.
“We have lost a wonderful person and are devastated for his family,” Jennifer Prady wrote.
“My brother Bill and I are devastated, as are our friends at The Family Dog.
I can’t say enough how sorry we are for this loss and our loss of a brother and sister.”
Bill Pradhys wife Kathy Prady also tweeted about the accident Saturday afternoon, saying, “I’m praying for Bill and his family.
I’ll never forget how happy we were to have him here.
We were looking forward to spending Christmas with him and his friends.
We are very proud of him and we will always remember him.”
A spokesperson for the U.S. Department of Transportation told ABC News that the department is investigating the accident but that it was “too early to determine whether a citation was issued.”
The crash closed a highway in both North Carolina and Ohio, and traffic was detoured in both states.
The incident has not been reported to authorities, and no arrests have been made.
The family has a children, three grandchildren, and one great-grandchild.
