An eyewitness told RadarOnline.com that the plane’s engine died, forcing Ford to make the scary crash landing. “From what we know, he sputtered out and he made a U-turn coming down the sixth fairway across the seventh fairway,” Larry Goetz told Radar. “He glided as much as he could and hit a tree.”
Goetz added that several people immediately rushed to the actor’s aid, including a few doctors who happened to be at the golf course at the time. Santa Monica airport police said that the airport sent an emergency crew to the scene as soon as they learned of the accident, though L.A. City Fire and LAPD were already present at the crash site.
