Jamie Foxx is much more than a law abiding citizen—he's a hero. 

The 48-year-old Oscar winner leaped to a stranger's rescue Monday night in California, his rep confirmed to E! News.

According to California Highway Patrol, 32-year-old Brett Kyle was driving at "a high rate of speed" when his car drove into a drainage ditch in the road, collided with a drainage pipe and concrete, rolled over multiple times and landed on the passenger side engulfed in flames.  

While Kyle was trapped inside the car, two witnesses near the scene—including Foxx—ran to the blazing  site to help free the trapped driver. The actor grabbed a rescue tool from his vehicle, which allowed the witnesses to break the window, cut the seat belt and get Kyle out alive. 

Immediately after, fire and medical emergency personnel arrived to the scene. Kyle was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and was taken to the hospital to treat his injuries.  

The Grammy winner has not flaunted his personal heroics since the crash, remaining silent about the event on all of his social media.
