A true lifesaver! Jamie Foxx saved a motorist from his burning truck on Monday, January 18. According to police reports, the White House Down actor saved the man’s life after he crashed his car near Foxx’s Hidden Valley, California, home.
“Jamie told CHP that he heard the accident and also a person screaming from the overturned vehicle," the Ventura County–based Safety for Citizens wrote in a post on its Facebook page. “Jamie also made a 911 call … [and] said he was able to reach into the vehicle, grab the person, and drag them away to safety.”
According to a police report obtained by NBC News, the driver, identified as Brett Kyle, was driving “at a high rate of speed” at about 8:30 p.m. when he flipped his Toyota Tacoma into a drainage ditch. "It struck a drainage pipe and concrete casing, causing the vehicle to roll over multiple times," the California Highway Patrol report read. "The vehicle came to rest on its passenger side, and became engulfed in flames with Mr. Kyle trapped inside his vehicle."
Foxx, along with another unnamed man, helped free Kyle from the vehicle.
Kyle, who was taken to Los Robles Hospital and Medical Center, has since been charged with DUI.
“Just got off the phone with my dad … Absolutely wild,” Foxx’s daughter Corinne tweeted on Tuesday, January 19. “That man really did have angels watching him. Definitely a life or death situation.”
