Jamie Foxx came to the rescue of a man involved in a car crash outside the actor's home in Hidden Valley, California, on Monday night.

Foxx's rep confirms to PEOPLE a Gossip Cop report that the actor rushed to the scene after the driver lost control of the vehicle, skidded off the road and flipped the car, which then burst into flames.

After calling 911, Fox, 48, pulled the man, who had been buckled in, out of the burning vehicle. The victim, identified as Brett Kyle, 32, suffered injuries and was rushed to a hospital.

"Two witnesses that were near the collision scene ran to the burning, overturned truck in an attempt to free the driver," police said in a statement to PEOPLE. "One of the witnesses retrieved a rescue tool from his vehicle allowing the two citizens to break the window, cut the seat belt, and extricate the driver."

The driver was later "arrested for driving under the influence," added the police.



The crash occurred at 8:30 p.m., and that no other vehicles were involved in the accident.

The actor has not yet commented on the incident.

His heroic efforts come just over a week after Foxx attended the Golden Globes award ceremony. The actor not only took the stage to present an award, but also accompanied his daughter, Corinne, who served as this year's Miss Golden Globe.

Foxx recently wrapped working on his latest film Sleepless Night and is set to begin production on Robin Hood: Origins in the next few weeks.
