Zoe Saldana doesn't just play heroines in her action films; she is one in real life! The Colombiana star rushed to help an elderly woman who was reportedly in a car accident in Culver City, Calif., on Wednesday.

"Zoe witnessed the car accident, and was very quick to help," says an eyewitness. "She immediately got on the phone with 911 and she seemed very concerned."

According to People, Saldana, 33, and another witness rushed to aid the injured senior, helping her get from her car to the curb. The on-looker explains how Saldana called 911 from her cell phone and waited with the accident victim for paramedics and police to arrive on the scene.
