Luke Wilson may never be the Wilson brother whose nasal voice you will remember from a bunch of funny movies you can barely remember and he may never have a Wilson brother to have a highly-publicized bromance with Bill Stiller; but he will always be the Wilson brother who heroically saved a woman from a road accident.  

The actor, who was driving his Toyota SUV near the Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California on Tuesday, February 13th, met with an accident, along with several other drivers who driving down the same road. All of their vehecles were all crashed into by a Ferrari "travelling at a high-rated speed". 

The driver of sports car was killed and the passenger, golfer Bill Haas, had met with serious injuries. As soon as the Ferrari halted to stop after hitting a light pole, Wilson, who was unhurt, jumped out of his own car to help an unidentified 50-year-old female driver, whose leg was trapped inside her vehicle which was flipped upside down due to the collision.

Tattoo artist Sean Heirigs, who was driving directly behind the Ferrari, ran over to help the lady as well, after directing his 14-year-old daughter to call 911. He told People, "It [her leg] was stuck between the steering wheel and the dashboard or something."  

Luke tried to assist Heirigs in getting the woman out. The tattoo artist elaborates, "At this time, Luke Wilson had jumped out and come up to the woman's window. She was crying for help, she obviously didn't know what was going on, she was very distraught." He claims the smoke was spreading fast, leading both him and Wilson to believe her car would catch fire soon.

"I reached in through a window to calm her down. "Luke went around the back, to the trunk of the car." Wilson reportedly figured out that they could get her out of the vehicle from the back and they pried the trunk open. "...She was able to unbuckle herself, and Luke started to pull her out from the back. We then both carried her to the curb," Heirigs narrated the harrowing incident.

Calling Wilson a “hero” who “led the charge” Heiring says the actor did his best to help all the victims. Upon hearing the story, the internet is – rightfully – hailing him as a hero as well:
