Ford, 75, was driving along California State Route 126 around noon on November 19 when he saw a gray vehicle swerve off the road into an embankment, TMZ reported. Eyewitnesses said Ford was driving behind her when she lost control of her vehicle and hit a concrete embankment. The victim suffered minor injuries and was taken to a hospital for an evaluation. Aside from the heroic auto crash rescue, Ford also assisted the NYPD during this fall by helping direct civilian traffic around another vehicular accident that occurred at the Queens-Midtown Tunnel. They then pulled over and made their way to the vehicle to help the woman.
Ford immediately pulled over and rushed to the auto along with several other bystanders. The California Highway Patrol, the lead agency for the incident, is investigating the cause, Alonzo said.
Ford was reportedly leaving a small airport near Santa Paula, which is often used by hobby pilots.
Indiana Jones to the rescue!
Once again, Harrison Ford has stepped into headlines (this time not for any plane incidents). Recently, according to Entertainment Tonight, he was seen directing traffic after cars got backed up at a New York City tunnel.
