Jamie Foxx is an award-winning actor, a musician and now, it seems, an American hero ready to help his fellow man at a moment’s notice.

A representative of Foxx confirmed to People reports that the actor rushed to pull a man from a burning car crash in Hidden Valley, Calif. on Monday night. According to a police statement about the incident, “Two witnesses that were near the collision scene ran to the burning, overturned truck in an attempt to free the driver.”

The 32-year-old driver, who was taken to the hospital, hit a drainage ditch, causing her car to flip and roll before catching fire. The driver was later arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, according to the police statement.
