Jamie Lee Curtis and one other person were taken to hospital in the back of two separate ambulances on Thursday after the black Yukon SUV the 54-year-old star was travelling in crashed into a BMW, and then Jodie Foster came to the rescue in true action heroine mode.

Foster rushed to help her close friend Curtis when she called her from the scene of the accident in California, on Thursday. Eye witnesses say that they saw Jamie Lee call Jodie from the scene of the accident and that she arrived within minutes, supporting both Curtis and the other injured person before ambulances and medics arrived on the scene. Jamie's injuries were minor and she has since been released from hospital, but the other victim is reported to be suffering more serious injuries.

TMZ have photos taken at the scene show a distressed Jamie Lee Curtis talking to police accompanied by Foster and surrounded by debris from the crash. We didn't even know they were buds, but we love a good celeb friendship story.
