A small plane piloted by Harrison Ford has crash-landed at an L.A. golf course … but we’re told the actor has survived.
TMZ has learned … Ford was piloting what appears to be a vintage 2-seater fighter plane Thursday … when something went wrong and he crashed into Penmar golf course in Venice, CA. Remarkably, it appears Ford veered off course from the runway in order to avoid crashing into homes.
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.
72-year-old Ford is a longtime aviator — piloting planes and helicopters — and has crashed multiple times in the past.
A rep for Ford says, “Harrison was flying a WW2 vintage plane today which stalled upon takeoff.” They added, “He had no other choice but to make an emergency landing, which he did safely. The injuries sustained are not life-threatening, and he is expected to make a full recovery.”
