The actor was piloting a vintage fighter plane which crashed into Venice, California’s Penmar golf course after something went wrong with the aircraft. TMZ is reporting that Ford suffered multiple gashes to the head and was transported to a nearby hospital. He was reportedly the only person aboard the plane.
NBC News reports that Penmar Golf Course employee Howard Tabe said, “Two very fine doctors were treating him, taking good care of him. I helped put a blanket under his hip.”
The 72-year-old “Star Wars” star is an avid pilot.
UPDATE: Ford’s son, Ben Ford, says his father “is ok. Battered, but ok!” tweeting from the hospital:
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.
