Actor Harrison Ford helped a woman on Sunday after she drove her car off a California highway.

Ford was driving behind the woman on California State Route 126 in Santa Paula, Calif. when she lost control of her car and drove into an embankment, TMZ reports.

Ford and other bystanders stopped to aid the woman, who suffered minor injuries, until police and paramedics arrived.

This is not the first time Ford has been spotted being a good samaritan. TMZ pointed out how, back in September, Ford directed traffic in Manhattan after a pileup clogged a tunnel and his car was caught in traffic.

The Han Solo actor has not been quite as on his game when it comes to flying his plane. In one recent incident, he accidentally landed on an airport taxiway vice the runway, and in 2015, his plane crashed into a field near the Santa Monica Airport as a result of engine trouble. While Ford may have some work to do to live up to the Millenium Falcon pilot within, he's been recognized as being a talented pilot.

"He's a very skilled pilot. He's very safety-conscious and goes to training routinely for all of his aircraft," Tom Haines with the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association told CNN after the 2015 incident.
