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

San Diego police Sgt David Jennings says Griffin O'Neal was behind the wheel of a car heading east on Tuesday afternoon in Escondido, California, when he veered into oncoming traffic and collided with another vehicle.

Jennings says O'Neal complained of pain and was taken to Palomar Medical Centre.

Hospital spokeswoman Bobette Brown says O'Neal was listed in stable condition and was released later on Tuesday.

Jennings did not know the condition of the other driver.

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