Jamie Foxx and a paramedic pulled a car crash victim from a burning wreck after the driver rolled his vehicle into a ditch outside the actor's home in Southern California this week.

"I don't look at it as heroic," Foxx told reporters, The Associated Press reported.

"I just look at it like, you know, you just had to do something. And it all just worked out."

The California Highway Patrol said 32-year-old Brett Kyle of Newbury Park crashed his 2007 Toyota Tacoma around 8:30 p.m. Monday.

Foxx said he heard the crash from his home, called 911, then ran out to the wreck.

He said that he and another man broke the window of the overturned car with EMT scissors, cut the driver's safety belt, and pulled him to safety.

"You've got to help me get you out, because I don't want to have to leave you. You've got angels around you," Foxx said he told Kyle.

"Within five seconds" the truck went up in flames, he added.

Foxx met with the victim's father, Brad Kyle, on Tuesday, and Kyle said Foxx showed him security camera footage of the crash.

"I just kept watching it and going 'My god, my god, he didn't have to do a thing,'" Kyle said, breaking into tears. "I think we all hope that we can do something when the time is there. But the question is, do we act or do we fear for our own life? He did not."

 
According to ABC News, police said that "Two witnesses that were near the collision scene ran to the burning, overturned truck in an attempt to free the driver. One of the witnesses retrieved a rescue tool from his vehicle allowing the two citizens to break the window, cut the seat belt, and extricate the driver."

The cops said the driver was eventually "arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol."
