Ryan Reynolds was the victim of a hit-and-run in Vancouver on Sunday.

The actor’s publicist told PEOPLE that he was struck by a paparazzo who was driving a car through an underground parking garage.

“The [driver] fled the scene,” publicist Leslie Sloane said. “Ryan is okay.”

The 38-year-old actor, who hails from Vancouver, was in town to film Deadpool. His wife, Blake Lively, was in Los Angeles over the weekend to do press for her latest film, The Age of Adaline.

Reynolds joked about his accident on Twitter on Sunday night when a reporter from the CBC Tweeted at him asking how he was doing after being hit by the car and sending out his phone number.

“Put Beachcombers back on the air and I’ll call,” Reynolds wrote, referencing the popular Canadian series that ran on CBC from 1972 to 1990.
