Harrison Ford Has Sustained "Serious Injuries" After a Plane Crash
Update: Los Angeles Fire Department officials have not confirmed that the pilot was Harrison Ford, but that it was a "70-year-old male" who sustained "moderate trauma," adding that he was "alert and conscious" before being transported to a local area hospital. They also confirmed that there was only one person on the plane at the time of the crash and that his condition has gone from critical to moderate.
Harrison Ford was originally reported to have been "seriously injured" after his vintage two-seater plane crashed into a golf course in the Los Angeles neighbourhood of Venice on Thursday afternoon. According to the LA Times, the aircraft crashed shortly before 2:30 p.m. on the Penmar Golf Course, two blocks from the Santa Monica Municipal Airport. Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott said the plane's pilot was "taken to the hospital in critical condition," though later reports from TMZ suggested that the 72-year-old actor was indeed the person flying the plane. The National Transportation Safety Board has been notified and will be investigating the crash.
