Monday night, actor Jamie Foxx pulled a dude out of a car that was on fire.
“I grabbed the scissors from him, cut the seatbelt,” Foxx told ABC 7. “As we pulled him out, within five seconds later, the truck goes up (in flames).”
The driver, 32-year-old Brett Kyle of Newbury Park, drove his 2007 Toyota Tacoma into a drainage ditch near Foxx’s home in HIdden Valley around 8:30 p.m., according to police
The car hit a drainage pipe and concrete, causing it to roll over multiple times, according to police. The Tacoma then caught fire with Kyle trapped inside.
Jamie Foxx and another man ran to the scene, broke the car window, cut the seat belt, and pulled Kyle out to safety, police said.
“Jamie didn’t hesitate. He jumped out and ran to the car,” a member of Foxx’s publicity team told ABC News.
