UPDATE #3: Ben Ford, Harrison's son, sent the following message from the hospital:
"Dad is okay, battered but okay. He is every bit the man you would think he is. He is an incredibly strong man."
UPDATE #2: NBC Los Angeles spoke with a family member who said that the actor has a few gashes, but is fine.
UPDATE: The Los Angeles Fire Department's Patrick Butler has given a press conference, stating:
"The patient was in moderate condition, alert, conscious and breathing."
Harrison Ford was piloting a small plane on Thursday when he somehow lost control and crash-landed on Penmar Golf Course in Venice at around 2:20 p.m.
The vintage yellow and silver WWII aircraft was totaled while the 72-year-old actor reportedly suffered gashes on his head.
Harrison was the only passenger.

Since it was a golf course, there were obviously two doctors playing a round who were able to treat Harrison at the scene before he was transported to nearby Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.
The Star Wars actor is no stranger to flying planes, so we'll be sure to keep you updated on what caused the crash when more news surfaces.
