Harrison Ford helps rescue woman after crash


The driver was taken to a nearby hospital. Witnesses say Ford was driving behind her when she lost control.

"He acted as a good Samaritan, just like everybody else, and tried to help before emergency services arrived", Senior Officer Matt Alonzo of the Santa Paula Police Department told USA Today. TMZ posted photos of the vehicle and Ford at the scene. On Sunday, the star reportedly helped a woman who crashed her auto on the highway. Ford, who was either leaving from or going to the Santa Paula Airport, helped the victim, authorities said. The actor - who is known for his fearless, heroic roles in movies like Star Wars and Indiana Jones - did not hesitate to rush to the woman's side. Ford, known as an avid pilot, had reportedly been at the airport earlier in the day, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Ford told Federal Aviation Administration officials he was distracted by a couple of jets at the time of the incident.
