You might consider Jamie Foxx a hero for playing awesome characters like Django and being a mainstay on your pregame playlist thanks to hits like “Blame It,” but the man is a hero IRL. He saved literally saved a man yesterday.

Last night, around 8:30 p.m., 32-year-old Brett Kyle lost control of his Toyota Tacoma in front of Foxx’s Venture County, California home. Foxx called 911 then went outside to help the driver who drove into a drainage ditch in the road, collided with a drainage pipe and concrete, rolled over multiple times, and landed on the passenger side in flames.

Speaking with ABC 7 News, the actor explains, “He has EMT scissors. He hits the glass, I climb in and try to hit his seat belt, but he’s hovered over, so the seat belt is on him. So I grabbed the scissors from him, cut the seat belt, but it’s on his neck. So I cut it off his neck. And then, as the flames do come into the cabin, I lean back, but I think what it did is it hit his legs, which made him extend. And when he extends out of the cabin, pull him out, and as we pull him out, within five seconds later, the truck goes up.”

Four for you, Jamie Foxx! You go, Jamie Foxx!

Putting himself in danger may have just saved Kyle’s life.

Everyone was okay, but Kyle was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and was taken to the hospital to treat his injuries.
