A PLANE piloted by actor Harrison Ford has crashed on a golf course in LA.

The 72-year-old ‘Star Wars’ legend is said to be injured, but not seriously, according to website TMZ.

The plane crash-landed on a golf course in Venice, California.

It is believed the actor suffered cuts to his head and was bleeding.

Two doctors, who were playing on the course at the time, attended to him at the scene.

Emergency services arrived a short time afterwards, and the star has been transferred to hospital.
