Actor Harrison Ford Injured In Small-Plane Crash In Los Angeles

Star wars actor Harrison Ford was on Thursday afternoon injured after he crashed his vintage plane on a golf course in the Los Angeles area shortly after he had taken off from an airport which was nearby, his publicist said.

According to Patrick Butler, an assistant Los Angeles Fire Chief, the single engine plane which belongs to Hollywood star actor Harrison Ford clipped a tree as it was attempting to return to Santa Monica Airport adding that the pilot of the aircraft was “alert and talking” when he was being taken to the hospital.

In a statement that was issued by the publicists of Harrison Ford, Ina Treciokas, confirmed that the actor was indeed in the plane at the time of the accident.

"Harrison was flying a WW2 vintage plane today, which had engine trouble upon take off. He had no other choice but to make an emergency landing, which he did safely. He was banged up and is in the hospital receiving medical care. The injuries sustained are not life-threatening, and he is expected to make a full recovery."

Ben, son of Harrison Ford, twitted that he was at the hospital and that his father was okay.
"Dad is OK. Battered but ok! He is every bit the man you would think he is. He is an incredibly strong man."

The pilot of the plane reported that he had loosed engine power just minutes before the plane crashed at the Los Angeles golf course at 2.20 p.m. PST, a spokesman from the National Transportation Safety Board said adding that the agency will be conducting a full investigation so as to determine the cause of the plane crash.
