Watch: Charley Webb shares car accident details
The soap star shared the news on her Instagram story, telling followers she was having a chiropractor appointment following the crash on Tuesday evening.
Talking to camera, Webb, 33, shared: "I’m in agony. It must just be like the adrenaline at the time you don’t realise and I don’t understand quite why it's as bad as what it is but, oh my word, it’s so painful."
She said the other person involved had apologised for the incident.
“I was still, there had been a traffic jam and the girl was really apologetic, bless her, but I’d been stationary for quite a while so she obviously wasn’t concentrating or watching where she was going because she came right into the back of me," Webb said.
“And it wasn’t actually that big of an impact – I didn’t jerk forward or anything."
The mum-of-three said she was relieved that she didn’t have her one-year-old son Ace in the car with her at the time.
She and fellow Emmerdale actor husband Matthew Wolfenden, 41, are also parents to Buster, 11, and Bowie, five.
Reflecting on the damage to her car, she confessed that it had come off better than the vehicle of the person who crashed into her:
“The car obviously was hit quite hard but I’ve got quite a big car so it doesn’t show huge marks, but her bumper was definitely damaged."
