Harrison Ford seriously injured after crashing plane

Hollywood actor Harrison Ford plane crash land on Thursday after his vintage World War II training plane lost engine power and crash-landed at an L.A. golf course.

The 72 year-old actor, who was conscious and breathing when rescue crews reached him, was stabilized and taken to a hospital, where he was in fair to moderate condition, authorities said. Sources familiar with the incident told NBC News that Ford slammed into the plane's console and control stick and that he underwent surgery Thursday night. He suffered a broken arm and a nasty gash to his head, among other injuries, they said.

Ben Ford, the well-known restaurateur and the actor's son, said on Twitter that his dad was "battered, but OK" after the crash, which happened about 2:20 p.m. (5:20 p.m. ET).
