According to the Star Beacon, the young actor was in a car crash on Route 84 in Kingsville Township, Ohio early this morning.

Smith's co-star Molly Burnett (Melanie) posted this update on the situation on her Facebook account:
"Just got off the phone with Freddie. He and Alyssa are OKAY. They were in a serious car accident last night, but were able to receive medical help IMMEDIATELY. Freddie was released from the hospital, and Alyssa will be in surgery for a few more hours. She was cognitive pre-surgery, and all of her tests were perfect. Both Freddie and Alyssa's families are heading there now, and they are in the best hands. I will keep you guys updated. Send over as many prayers and well wishes as you can."
From ET Canada, "Specifics from the police report have since been released: A 2009 Mazda 6 was traveling westbound on State Route 84. The Mazda failed to safely negotiate a left curve and lost control. It crossed the centerline, traveled the left side of the road and struck a culvert. This impact caused the car to overturn end over end. The vehicle came to final rest and the passenger was temporarily trapped inside. Speed and alcohol are both believed to be factors in the crash."
