He may have played a supervillain on screen, but in the real world Jamie Foxx is a superhero!
The Oscar winner actor rescued a man involved in a car crash outside his California home on Monday night.
The accident happened at 8:30 p.m. after the driver lost control of the vehicle, skidded off the road and flipped the car in front of the actor’s gate. After calling 911, Jamie and another witness unbuckled the man and carried him about 30 feet away from the scene for safety.
“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,” police said in the release.
The 32-year-old driver was taken to the hospital with major injuries, including burns. The driver was later arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, according to the police statement.
UPDATE: Jamie opened up to reporters on Tuesday about rescuing a 32-year-old man from a burning car crash.
