Harrison Ford Sustains Injuries After Crashing Vintage Small Plane on L.A. Golf Course


Actor Harrison Ford crashed his vintage small plane on a Los Angeles golf course Thursday afternoon, according to multiple reports.

TMZ reported that Ford suffered multiple gashes to his head after after crash landing at Penmar Golf Course.

TMZ has learned ... Ford was piloting what appears to be a vintage 2-seater fighter plane today ... when something went wrong and he crashed into Penmar golf course in Venice, CA.

We're told Ford suffered multiple gashes to his head and was bleeding. Two doctors who happened to be at the golf course rushed over to treat the actor.

Emergency personnel arrived to the scene a short time later. Ford was transported to a nearby hospital.

According to NBC News, the actor sustained serious injuries, but was not in critical condition as initial reports said.

His injuries were originally described as "critical," but sources emphasized they are better characterized as serious, including lacerations to the head and possible fractures.

Howard Tabe, an employee at the Penmar Golf Course, said 'There was blood all over his face ... Two very fine doctors were treating him, taking good care of him. I helped put a blanket under his hip."

Ford's team was not immediately available for comment to TheBlaze. The actor, a longtime pilot, has crashed several times in the past.

At a press conference, an official with the L.A. Fire Department declined to identify Ford as the victim, but said the pilot was transported to the hospital in "fair to moderate condition" and was initially "rescued by bystanders."

"He was alert and conscience," the official said.

Ford's son later tweeted that his father was "battered, but ok!"

A man claimed on Twitter that his mother was in fact one of the individuals who tended to Ford following the crash.

Audio obtained by BuzzFeed News appeared to capture Ford radio to the airport that his aircraft was experiencing "engine failure."
