London (ANI): English songwriter, guitarist and vocalist Noel Gallagher was called a hero after he jumped in front of a driverless car. The Oasis frontman was out on his walk when the out-of-control car came careening towards him and a row of houses, and without hesitating he jumped in front of the car and battling it to a stop before it smashed into the houses.
"Noel lives in the area and must have been taking a walk in the weekend sunshine when the car buzzed by. It was flying down the road with no-one inside and heading straight for some houses," the Daily Star quoted a pedestrian inc, as saying. "He jumped out in front of the car and pushed at it with all his might," the pedestrian said.
The car's owner was visiting a friend in a nearby house and forgot to apply his handbrake, and when the driver came outside, the car was not to be found until 40-year-old Gallagher pointed it out to him. "The owner looked very embarrassed, but Noel took it all in good humour," a source added
