    (CNN)Oscar winner Jamie Foxx helped rescue a man whose crashed pickup truck caught fire Monday night in front of Foxx's home.

    Brett Kyle, 32, was driving his Toyota Tacoma "at a high rate of speed" in Moorpark, a town in Ventura County, California, when the truck left the road, traveled into a drainage ditch and rolled over multiple times, according to a statement from California Highway Patrol Officer Marco Marin.

    The truck landed on its passenger side and caught fire with Kyle still inside.

    "As I'm getting him out, I said, 'You've got to help me get you out because I don't want to have to leave you,' " Foxx told CNN affiliate KCAL. "I said, 'You've angels around you.'"

    Foxx and an off-duty EMT cut Kyle out of his seat belt and dragged him out of the pickup.

    The pickup truck's driver had numerous injuries, officials said.
    "I don't look at it as heroic. I just look at it as ... you just had to do something," Foxx told KCAL. "It all worked out."

    "When fire crews arrived on scene just one minute later, they reported the vehicle as fully involved in fire," Ventura County Fire Department spokesman Capt. Mike Lindbery told CNN. "The patientwas taken to the hospital with burn injuries. There was no one else in the truck."

    "It was a pretty courageous thing to do," said Lindbery, speaking about the rescue. "It's rare these days that you find someone willing to jump in to help like that."

    Ventura County Fire and American Medical Response transported Kyle to Los Robles Hospital and Medical Center. The collision report documented that he had major head, chest, neck and waist trauma.

    Kyle was arrested and accused of driving under the influence of alcohol. The accident is under investigation by the California Highway Patrol's Moorpark Area Office.

    CNN's Cherri Mossburg and Andy Rose contributed to this story.
