Harrison Ford Crashes Plane

Harrison Ford was injured this afternoon when his vintage World War II training plane crash landed on Penmar Park Golf Course. Control tower audio indicates engine failure caused the plane to crash about 2:20 p.m. (5:20 p.m. ET).

Authorities confirm the actor was conscious and breathing when rescue crews reached him. He has been taken to a local hospital and listed in fair to moderate condition. Independent sources confirm the actor sustained cuts to his head. Ford was apparently flying alone.

“We are very thankful that the passenger had very moderate injuries,” Los Angeles Assistant Fire Chief Patrick Butler said.

Harrison Ford is an avid flyer of both planes and helicopters, Ford was in a bad crash of a Bell chopper in 1999 Santa Clara, California. In 2008, he told National Geographic, “Well, there was a mechanical failure while we were practicing power recovery auto-rotations. It was more or less a hard landing. Luckily, I was with another aviation professional and neither of us was hurt — and both of us are still flying.”
