Gary Busey

to the Rescue in Highway Crash

8/26/2010 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gary Busey is being hailed a highway hero -- after the actor witnessed a collision in Malibu earlier this week  ... and rushed to the scene to help out a 21-year-old man who was injured in the wreck.

Gary Busey
Law enforcement sources tell us Gary called 911 on Tuesday afternoon after two cars collided on Pacific Coast Highway ... but after the call, Gary was the first person who went down to the scene to help out.

According to a witness, Gary helped slow traffic -- and stayed with one of the injured men until paramedics arrived.

TMZ spoke to the injured man's mother -- who told us Gary was "very sweet and caring" ... and wanted to thank the actor for all of his help.  The mom also told us her son only has minor back pain ... but on the whole, he's doing fine.

So far, no word from Busey himself.

I think we need to raise the legal driving age to 25..it appears many under that age just lack the skill to drive.

Gary, famous/infamous & controversial has always seemed like he is a cool guy... like his discussions after Hunter S. Thompsons unfortunate death and other statements he's made about the state of the country & such. Be him wild, or calm as ever.. Rock on, Gary!
ps: don't forget him as a young as Buddy Holly. He Nailed that roll, actor/guitarist/vocalist.

Gary might have problems (who doesn't), but he's one of the good guys.

I agree with #11... But someone should have told him he didn't have to wear red tights and a cape just to slow down traffic.

It is nice to read of unselfish acts by celebrities. It is rare to read of them doing anything for anyone that doesn't promote themselves. Good job, Gary@
