Harrison Ford was hospitalized this afternoon following a single-engine vintage plane crash he was piloting.

Shortly after takeoff, Ford was forced to emergency land the plane onto a Venice, California golf course.

According to a family member, Harris Ford is fine and suffered a few gashes.

It's said Ford is expected to undergo surgery for some of the injuries and is in stable condition.

Ford is said to have reported engine trouble shortly after takeoff and attempted to return to the airport, according to the National Transportation Safety Board.

Ford's publicist also released the following statement:

"Harrison was flying a WW2 vintage plane today which had engine trouble upon take off. He had no other choice but to make an emergency landing, which he did safely. He was banged up and is in the hospital receiving medical care. The injuries sustained are not life threatening, and he is expected to make a full recovery."

No one else was injured.
