Actor Harrison Ford is expected to recover from injuries he suffered Thursday when a vintage airplane he was flying crash landed. As we reported previously, the World War II training plane crash landed on a Southern California golf course at about 2:20 p.m.

TMZ.com quotes a representative for the actor saying: “Harrison was flying a WW2 vintage plane [Thursday] which stalled upon takeoff. He had no other choice but to make an emergency landing, which he did safely. The injuries sustained are not life-threatening, and he is expected to make a full recovery.”

Ford reportedly brought the plane down at the Penmar Golf Course in Venice, Calif., after the engine failed soon after takeoff from the Santa Monica Airport.

A witness reportedly told TMZ: “A swath of his skin was missing. There was blood dripping down his face.”

A Fire Department spokesman said Ford was taken to UCLA Medical Center.

According to some media reports, Ford suffered a broken pelvis and broken ankle, along with multiple facial injuries.

The National Transportation Safety Board was reportedly investigating the incident.
