From Han Solo to Rick Deckard to Henry "Indiana" Jones Jr., Harrison Ford is best known for the iconic heroes he has played on the big screen. But the on-screen smuggler and adventurer proved this past Sunday he's the kind of guy who runs towards the danger in real life as well. The actor was seen helping out at the scene of an accident in Santa Paula, California where a woman's vehicle rolled off the highway and hit a tree.
According to VC Star, the actor was in the area with a friend when they heard the vehicle crash. They headed over to the scene to help, and along with others, they were able to help the woman out of the car. It is unclear what the cause of the accident was, but fortunately the woman only suffered minor injuries. This is obviously the kind of good Samaritan behavior you would expect and hope for from everyone regardless of their celebrity status. Unnamed civilians helping out at the scene of an accident might not even make the news beyond local reporting. Still, it is heartening to hear about people helping each other out, famous or otherwise. It also had to be quite the shocking experience for the driver; you were just in a car accident and your adrenaline is probably through the roof, and then you see Harrison Ford has come to your rescue.
Of course, Harrison Ford is no stranger to accidents himself and should be well-equipped to help when one occurs. The actor is also a pilot and has had more than his fair share of close calls while in the air. Sadly, life does not always imitate art, and Harrison Ford cannot fly as well as Han Solo. Whether it was his plane hitting the ground, his fist accidentally hitting Ryan Gosling's face or the Millennium Falcon being less than welcoming to him, the poor guy seems to be a rather calamitous individual. But. despite the death wish he seems to have for some of his characters, the actor himself is tough as old shoe leather.
The actor and his characters have been a major part of the zeitgeist in recent years since Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Harrison Ford was last seen on screen in this fall's Blade Runner 2049, which underperformed at the box office despite critical acclaim. Alden Ehrenreich will take up the mantle of Harrison Ford's most famous character, Han Solo in the upcoming prequel Solo: A Star Wars Story. There is also Indiana Jones 5 or 'We're sorry, it won't happen again' to look forward to on July 10, 2020 in the future. The beloved actor looks like he will be entertaining audiences for years to come. For all the latest in movie news and celebrity heroics, keep it locked on CinemaBlend.
