Ford was piloting what appears to be a vintage two-seater fighter plane earlier today when something went amiss and he plummeted to the grounds of Penmar golf course in Venice, California.

After a pair of doctors playing on the course responded to the scene, emergency personnel soon arrived and Ford was transported to a local hospital.

It is believed the star suffered numerous gashes to his head and was bleeding at the time of the accident. He was the only person inside the plane.

Ford, 72, is a longtime aviator. He has flown a number of planes and helicopters - and he has crashed on multiple occasions in the past.

UPDATE: The Santa Monica Fire Department has confirmed that Ford remained conscious and alert throughout the ordeal. He may have broken his leg and is now in serious condition.

The Federal Aviation Administration told KNBC that the plane crashed shortly after it took off.

"The patient was outside of the plane when paramedics arrived at the scene," a fire official told reporters at a press conference at the golf course following the accident.
