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.”
