In "Colombiana," Zoe Saldana plays an assassin hellbent on vengeance -- but off-screen in Culver City, the actress used her powers for good.

Saldana on Wednesday rushed to the aid of an elderly woman who was involved in a car crash, helping her from her vehicle to the curb and dialing 911.

"Zoe witnessed the car accident, and was very quick to help," a witness told People. She "immediately got on the phone with 911 and she seemed very concerned."

Photos of the scene showed serious cuts to the driver's face. Saldana stuck by until paramedics arrived.

"While waiting for help to arrive, Zoe returned to the woman's car and picked up the woman's handbag and sweater. Zoe was very caring and sweet to the woman," the witness added.

Saldana, currently rumored to be dating actor Bradley Cooper, will take her heroics this weekend to the Sundance Film Festival, where she'll promote her and Cooper's thriller "The Words."
