The Ventura County Fire Department told ABC News that it responded to an accident of the same description on Monday night.

The man's car is believed to have skidded on a wet road, then hit a ditch and flipped over, reported TMZ, which obtained photos of the grisly scene.

The "Django Unchained" star, 48, heard the accident and reported it to the California Highway Patrol, then, fearing the car would explode, dragged the man, who had been buckled into his seat, about 30 feet from the accident, witnesses told the gossip site.

The man was taken to a hospital, where he was treated for major injuries, according to several reports.
