A car accident victim is thankful to Jamie Foxx after the Oscar-winning actor saved his life. According to TMZ, Foxx went into super mode and pulled the driver from an overturned, burning car in Hidden Valley, just northeast of Los Angeles.

The brutal wreck happened at 8:30 p.m. on Monday after one vehicle reportedly skidded on a wet road, hit a ditch and flipped over, landing upside down, and it all happened right in front of the actor's gate.

Witnesses say the Ray actor told CHP officers he immediately ran to the scene after hearing the commotion and saw the driver buckled to his seat. In fear that the burning car would explode, he told police he unbuckled the man and carried him about 30 feet away from the scene for safety.

Jamie also reportedly called 911 before helping out. Once the cops and firefighters arrived at the scene of the accident, they transported the victim to the hospital where he is said to have serious injuries and burns.

Shout out to Jamie Foxx for lending a helping hand when it really counted.
