Tiffany Haddish had a scary moment while driving to tape Dax Shepard's podcast.

Haddish, 44, and Shepard, 49, spent the first several minutes of the May 6 episode of Armchair Expert dealing with the immediate aftermath of a car accident Haddish got into while driving to meet Shepard. The host noted that he picked Haddish up from the scene of the crash. While the actress and comedian said she was uninjured following the scary moment, she confessed to feeling a little shaken up.

"I was by myself. I was trying to decide if I was going to act like I was f---- up," Haddish joked, after Shepard noted some fans of hers had recognized Haddish at the scene of the accident.

"When the car spun around, I was sitting there. I was trembling a little bit, and I was like, 'Where did my phone go?' Because it flew out of the holder, and it hit me in the arm and the leg. And I was like, where's the phone? And then I picked the phone up off the floor, and then I was like, let me try to get the car out of the middle of the road, and thank God nobody was coming from the other direction," she added.

Though Haddish said her first instinct after the accident was to get out of the car and confront the other party in the crash, she quickly realized it would be inappropriate to respond aggressively.

"And then I see the guy get out the car, and he's walking towards me. And he's like, 'Are you okay? He said, 'Oh, s---. I hit my favorite person.' And I'm holding the phone, and I'm like, 'Who do I call first? Who do I call first?' And I'm trembling, and I'm like, 'Did I f--- this guy before? Do I know him?' ... I'm just wondering, do I know him? And he kept saying are you alright? Are you good? And I rolled the window down and I said , 'I guess, maybe.' "

"I'm trembling, though. So I'm like, 'Trembling is good. You're releasing trauma.' And I'm like, 'Should I get out of this car limping? Do I even want to limp?' " 

Haddish added that she called her sister soon after the accident and that she and the driver in the other car eventually recognized each other from working at the L.A. comedy club The Comedy Store.

"Do you want to go home? I'll drive you home," Shepard asked at one point. "No, because I'm just going to sit around and cry," Haddish responded.

Shepard and his co-host Monica Padman marveled over Haddish's decision to go through with the podcast appearance so soon after a car accident. "I'm not bleeding, I'm not broken. I can still talk and communicate," Haddish said.
