Good news, everyone: Harrison Ford is out of the hospital

Harrison Ford is apparently back on his feet less than a month after his frightening plane crash.

According to People.com, the legendary actor was seen driving around Los Angeles this past Saturday (March 28), just over three weeks since the March 5 incident in which he crash-landed a vintage World War II plane on a golf course in Santa Monica, Calif.

It was Ford's own skill as a pilot that quite possibly saved his life when the small plane he was flying suffered some kind of mechanical failure shortly after taking off from a local private airport, forcing him to ditch at the nearby golf course.

Ford was taken from the wreckage, bleeding but conscious, and rushed to UCLA Medical Center, where he was treated for a lacerated scalp and broken bones in his pelvis and ankle. 

It's not clear when Ford was allowed to leave the hospital, but it's likely that he's still undergoing physical therapy for his injuries. He'll next be on screen in The Age of Adaline, a fantasy due out April 24, and then in Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Dec. 18.

He is slated to appear in the upcoming sequel to Blade Runner, but since that film does not have a start date for production yet, the remainder of his recovery probably won't have any impact on that project.

We're just glad that he's still with us and apparently over the worst of his injuries. After all, this is Han Solo and Indiana Jones (and Jack Ryan and Rick Deckard) we're talking about ... nothing can keep him down for very long, right?
