A woman who crashed her car off the side of a California highway over the weekend probably wasn't expecting Indiana Jones to come to her rescue. But that's who she got, in the form of the real-life Harrison Ford, who happened to be driving behind her late Sunday morning when she lost control of her car in Santa Paula and veered into an embankment, TMZ reports. The 75-year-old Ford and others pulled over and rushed down the slope to help the woman out of her car and wait for medical help to arrive. Cops say she didn't suffer any serious injuries. Fox News notes Ford's own brushes with dangerous vehicular situations, including crash-landing his small plane on a golf course in 2015 and a close call earlier this year at a California airport.
