Harrison Ford has been serious injured a small plane that crashed onto the Penmar Golf Course near Los Angeles at 2:25 pm. Sources say that he was piloting solo in a vintage World War I two-seater when the plane encountered an issue which lead to the crash-landing onto the green.
Golfers at the course were there to help Ford out of the plane. The course has been shut down as the situation is being taken care of.
Ford, 72 years-old, suffered gashes to his head and was bleeding, as TMZ reports. Two doctors were on site to immediately tend to the actor’s injuries members of the Santa Monica Fire Department arrived to the scene as well.
Paramedics arrived shortly after to transport Ford to a nearby medical facility. He was the only person injured in the single-engine plane accident.
The Star Wars and Indiana Jones star was said to be in stable condition before being taken to the local hospital.
Ford is an avid pilot and has previously been involved with multiple crashes while flying. The Penmar golf course is no stranger to plane crashes, as it was the site to a fatal crash nearly five years ago. It is located just off of the runway of the Santa Monica municipal airport.
After being initially rushed to care in critical condition, Ford has since been upgraded to moderate condition.
Our thoughts go out to Ford and his family, as we hope for a speedy recovery for him.
Update: Ben Ford, Harrison’s son, just sent out a reassuring Tweet.
At the hospital. Dad is ok. Battered, but ok! He is every bit the man you would think he is. He is an incredibly strong man.
