A car skidded on the wet street Monday night, went out of control, and flipped in front of Jamie Foxx's gate in Hidden Valley, Calif.—prompting Foxx to go into real-life action hero mode. Witnesses tell TMZ Foxx heard the wreck, called 911, and hurried over; the car was burning and he was afraid it might explode, so he unbuckled the driver and dragged him from his seat and about 30 feet away from the car. The driver was taken to a hospital with what TMZ calls "major injuries." (More Jamie Foxx stories.)
