A small plane has crash-landed on a golf course near the Santa Monica Municipal Airport, seriously injuring the pilot.

Celebrity news website TMZ.com reported that the pilot is actor Harrison Ford, though there has been no official confirmation.

Authorities say the single-engine plane went down around 2:30 p.m. Thursday on the green at Penmar Golf Course in the Venice area of Los Angeles.

The course is just west of a runway. But there’s no word yet on whether the plane had taken off or was trying to land.

The plane, which was yellow with stars on its wings, appeared to be a Ryan PT-22 Recruit, a vintage plane used for training during World War II. It was mostly intact.

The pilot was the only person aboard, and nobody on the ground was hurt.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
