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.
I slid below it. No deaths. Banged up. Car wrecked. Good to be alive. Glad everybody survived.— James Woods (@James Woods)1450152348.0
Every person I dealt with here in Colorado was just superb, professional and caring. Victor at AAA and Kathy who got my stuff from car.— James Woods (@James Woods)1450152584.0
Including me it was a seven car crash, I guess. Police told me I'm the only one who didn't hit anybody else. I just crashed into the walls.— James Woods (@James Woods)1450152730.0
I was in my 4WD Jeep Grand Cherokee. That Jeep saved my life. An old tank.— James Woods (@James Woods)1450152827.0
I tell you one thing, I admire the fire and police personnel and tow truck drivers out there in storms on dangerous roads. God bless them.— James Woods (@James Woods)1450152942.0
