Authorities say Griffin O'Neal, the 46-year-old son of actor Ryan O'Neal, was hospitalized after a traffic collision in San Diego County.

San Diego police say Griffin O'Neal was behind the wheel of a car Tuesday afternoon in Escondido when he veered into oncoming traffic and collided with another vehicle.

A hospital spokeswoman says O'Neal was treated and later released.

Earlier Tuesday, Griffin's half-brother, Redmond O'Neal, was jailed in Santa Monica after police allegedly found heroin in his car during a traffic stop.
