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



    (Reuters) - Film star Harrison Ford was injured on Thursday when the "Star Wars" actor crashed his vintage plane on a Los Angeles golf course shortly after taking off from a nearby airport, his publicist said.

    The single-engine plane clipped a tree as it attempted to return to Santa Monica Airport shortly after take-off, and the pilot was "alert and talking" as he was taken to a local hospital, Assistant Los Angeles Fire Chief Patrick Butler said.

    Butler declined to confirm that Ford was on board the silver and yellow aircraft, but Ina Treciokas, publicist for the 72-year-old actor, issued a statement confirming the details:

    "Harrison was flying a WW2 vintage plane today, which had engine trouble upon take off. He had no other choice but to make an emergency landing, which he did safely. He was banged up and is in the hospital receiving medical care. The injuries sustained are not life-threatening, and he is expected to make a full recovery."

    Harrison seems to be pretty accident prone lately. He broke his ankle while filming the latest Star Wars and was out for some time. Now he has crashed his plane. Maybe it is time for Harrison to retire and quit acting like Indiana Jones. He is 72 for Christ sake.

    For fucks sake, I hope you're joking, you sound like an old woman.
    I hope I'm of sound enough mind and body to be working and flying planes when I'm 72.
    As long as he is able why shouldn't he.
    I read a very good on here a while back, forget who wrote it.
    "Do it while you can because there will come a time when you can't", basically (I THINK it was peterpan). Sound advice indeed.
    You should be as fit and cool as him at 70+




    Hope he's OK.

    Someone might have wanted to stop him remaking the classic film "Bladerunner?"

    Harrison Ford: ?I?ll stop when I?ve ruined all of my films?
