Har­ri­son Ford helps res­cue woman from car wreck

The Gulf Today - Panorama - - Books -

A woman who ran her car off the high­way came in for a strange sur­prise — when a cin­e­matic hero came to her res­cue. The Hol­ly­wood Re­porter con­firms, via the Santa

Paula fire depart­ment (SPFD), that Har­ri­son Ford rushed to the scene of a crash late in Santa Paula, where a woman who was driving on Cal­i­for­nia State Route 126 lost con­trol of her ve­hi­cle and crashed into an em­bank­ment off the free­way.

The ac­tor, who had been at the air­port ear­lier and was get­ting on the free­way, was one of sev­eral by­standers who pulled over and rushed to the woman’s aide, suc­ceed­ing in res­cu­ing the woman from the car wreck while paramedics ar­rived.

The driver was trans­ported to Santa Paul hos­pi­tal with mi­nor in­juries, a rep­re­sen­ta­tive for SPFD said.

Ford him­self is no stranger to dan­ger­ous scrapes, hav­ing fa­mously been in­volved in sev­eral in­ci­dents with his plane. Most re­cently, he mis­tak­enly landed his private plane on a taxi­way at an air­port, after a near-miss with an air­liner car­ry­ing 116 peo­ple.

“I’m the schmuck who landed on the taxi­way,” the ac­tor could be heard telling the traf­fic con­troller.
