Los Angeles  - Harrison Ford has been released from hospital.

The Star Wars actor seems to have recovered from his nasty plane crash earlier this month as he was spotted driving around Los Angeles over the weekend, according to

The 72-year-old star was rushed to hospital with head injuries after the two-seater plane he was piloting smashed into Penmar Golf Course in Venice, Los Angeles, afer he was forced to make an emergency landing due to an engine malfunction.

His son Ben took to his Twitter account shortly after the smash-up to reassure fans his father was doing well and to thank everyone for their well-wishes and kind messages following the scary ordeal.

He tweeted: "We want [to] thank you all for your concern. Dad has the best care possible, on the mend and of strong mind body & spirit. (sic)"

His co-stars from the sci-fi flick urged the actor to rest up, with Carrie Fisher - who played Princess Leia - telling Harrison: "I know you have incredible bounce back, please take a bounce break for awhile. Can I drive next time?"

Mark Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker, tweeted: "Glad to hear Harrison is doing well. Get well soon. May all his future flights be green-screen! (sic)'

Harrison, who got his pilot's licence 19 years ago, owns around 11 private planes in Los Angeles and is an avid flyer.

But this isn't the first time he's been involved in an accident as he also crashed a Bell chopper in 1999 while flying in California.
