Harrison Ford Rescues a Woman from a Car Crash

Harrison Ford is apparently a real-life-action-hero when he’s not filming– because he came to a woman’s rescue after she crashed off the highway in California on Sunday.

Here’s what happened, according to officials: A 63-year-old woman was driving eastbound in the fast lane of Highway 126 at about 11 am when her car lost control and drifted down the central reservation.

Officer Tom Kirkland, a spokesman for the CHP, said that when the woman put on the brakes, she lost control of the car and it swerved right across all the eastbound lanes and down an embankment.

Harrison Ford was on the same road with a friend when he saw the woman’s car in the embankment. He wasted no time pulling over so he could help her.

Local police officer Matt Alonzo said: “He acted as a good Samaritan, just like everybody else, and tried to help before emergency services arrived.”

Ford, along with a few other drivers on California State Route 126, helped the woman out of her vehicle before the police and paramedics arrived on the scene. The woman had sustained only minor injuries in the accident.

Ford was also recently recorded on camera directing traffic after a large car accident occurred in New York’s Midtown Tunnel.

Although he is a man of many talents, Ford is trained as a pilot, and has had several close calls and a few crashes under his belt.  Maybe dealing with ground traffic is more his calling?
