Action movie star Harrison Ford staged a real-life rescue on Sunday after a woman rolled over her car, Santa Paula, California police say.

"He acted as a good Samaritan, just like everybody else, and tried to help before emergency services arrived," Senior Officer Matt Alonzo of the Santa Paula Police Department told the Ventura County Star:

Ford and a friend were out for a noontime drive when they heard the accident and pulled over to help the female driver safely out of her smashed, upside-down car:

“Senior Officer Matt Alonzo of the Santa Paula Police Department was working the incident, which took place around noon. A sedan rolled over off of eastbound Highway 126 in the vicinity of Eighth Street and hit a tree, he said.

“The actor was in the area with a friend when they heard the vehicle crash and headed over to assist, Alonzo said.”

Ford stayed with the woman until emergency responders came and took the woman to the hospital.

This isn’t the first time Ford has performed heroics in real life. As the “Good Morning America” video below explains, Ford has twice used his helicopter to rescue stranded strangers, and even stepped up to direct traffic in the street, when needed.
