Harrison Ford rescued a car accident victim and became a real life hero on Sunday, when he was in the area of a rollover crash and lent a helping hand, USA Today reported.

Senior Officer Matt Alonzo of the Santa Paula Police Department explained that the incident took place after a sedan rolled off of eastbound Highway 126 and hit a tree, USA Today noted.

Ford and several other bystanders immediately rushed to the driver's aid.

Eyewitnesses told TMZ that Ford, who was driving at the time of the accident, saw the incident unfold and pulled over to help the woman behind the wheel get out of the vehicle.

"He acted as a good Samaritan, just like everybody else, and tried to help before emergency services arrived," Alonzo said of Ford's actions, according to USA Today.

The woman was the only occupant in the car and was transported to a hospital with minor injuries.

This is not the first time that Ford has lent a helping hand to others.

In September the actor hopped out of his car to direct traffic in New York after getting stuck in a traffic jam at the entrance of Midtown Tunnel, Entertainment Tonight reported.

Video footage caught by a bystander shows the 75-year-old dressed in a suit waving vehicles out of the congestion.

Ford has also been in his fair share of emergency situations including various crashes and near-crashes connected with his flying hobby over the years.

The actor was involved in a close call at John Wayne Airport in February when he he mistakenly landed on a taxiway as an American Airlines jet was preparing for takeoff, the Los Angeles Times reported. In 2015 he crash landed a World War II-era airplane on a golf course in Santa Monica after the engine failed. In 1999, he crash-landed a helicopter in Ventura County, California, during a flight lesson, and the following year, he scraped the runway in his six-seat Beechcraft Bonanza at the Lincoln Municipal Airport in Nebraska.
