Actor Harrison Ford injured in small-plane crash in Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES, (Reuters) – “Star Wars” star Harrison Ford was seriously injured yesterday when the actor crashed his vintage plane on a Los Angeles golf course shortly after taking off from a local airport, a source told Reuters.

The single-engine plane clipped a tree as it went down shortly after taking off from Santa Monica Airport, about a mile (1.6 km) away, and the pilot survived in “fair to moderate” condition, Assistant Los Angeles Fire Chief Patrick Butler said.

Butler declined to confirm that Ford was on board the aircraft, but a source close to the investigation said it was the 72-year-old actor.
