Harrison Ford ‘banged up’ but recovering from plane crash

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Harrison Ford’s representative says he’s “banged up” but expected to make a full recovery after crash-landing a vintage plane on a Los Angeles golf course.

Ford’s publicist Ina Treciokas (EE-nuh tress-ee-OH’-kuhs) released a statement Thursday night saying the actor was flying a World War II vintage plane that had engine trouble on takeoff.

She says Ford had no choice but to make an emergency landing, which he did safely.

The statement says Ford is in the hospital receiving care, and his injuries are not life-threatening.

The 72-year-old “Star Wars” and “Indiana Jones” actor had just taken off from Santa Monica Municipal Airport when he reported the engine trouble and then crash-landed just short of the runway on the golf course.
