Actor James Woods turned to Twitter Monday night to reveal he was involved in a car accident that could have claimed his life.

The two-time Academy Award nominee said he was driving in the Rocky Mountains when a driver spun out in an ice storm. Woods wrote that he hit the guard rail on the right "to avoid him," then "spun 180, hit left wall sliding backwards going 60 mph."

Woods said there was a 100-foot drop into a river, but luckily the guard rail held.

The actor said he suffered a "little concussion," but thanked God he was able to escape the scary seven-car crash with his life.

Woods is known for starring in a number of films, including "Salvador" and "Ghosts of Mississippi." Additionally, he has done voiceover work for "The Simpsons" and "Stuart Little 2."
