Luke Wilson is a real-life hero.
The 46-year-old actor reportedly pulled a trapped woman from her smoking car after a Ferrari had crashed into it Tuesday night in Southern California. According to the New York Daily News, Wilson’s SUV was also damaged in the collision; however, he left the scene without any injuries.
“Luke Wilson was the hero,” said tattoo artist Sean Heirigs, who witnessed the crash. “His car was also clipped, but he just pulled over and jumped out to help immediately. He was leading the charge.”
The LAPD told the Associated Press that the crash occurred at around 6:30 p.m. PT, when the Ferarri, driven by 71-year-old Mark Gibello, collided with the woman’s BMW. After her vehicle had been flipped over, Heirigs said he and Wilson rushed over to see if they could assist the woman whose leg was pinned inside the car.
“She was screaming for help, crying,” Heirigs recalled. “I leaned in through the passenger window to help as she pushed herself up and got her leg out. He helped her out the back of the car. Luke and myself, we carried her over to the curb and got her situated.”
According AP, the 50-year-old woman was hospitalized in critical condition.
Gibello died at the scene. The passenger in the Ferrari, professional golfer Bill Haas, was treated at the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries. Haas has since been released.
Authorities are investigating the crash, trying to determine if speed was a factor.
