Morgan Freeman Injured in Car Accident
Posted Aug 4th 2008 10:39AM

TMZ has learned that Academy Award winning actor Morgan Freeman, 71, has been injured in a serious car accident in Mississippi.

Cops tell us the "Dark Knight" star was in a one car accident around 11:30 PM last night north of the small town of Ruleville. He was airlifted from the accident scene to a hospital in Memphis, Tenn. We're told alcohol is not suspected as a factor in the wreck, news of which was first reported by MediaTakeout.

Freeman's condition is unknown, but state troopers tell us he was talking at the scene before he was taken to the hospital. The condition of an unidentified female passenger in the car is also unknown.

That was also used in the movie Love Guru, The Electric Company.

From Boston.com

McFerrin said it appeared that Freeman's car was airborne went it left the highway and landed in a ditch.

"They had to use the jaws of life to extract him from the vehicle," McFerrin said. "He was lucid, conscious. He was talking, joking with some of the rescue workers at one point."

watched the new's from Memphis at noon...a reporter outside the hospital said it is suspected..."suspected" that Freeman may have fallen asleep at the wheell...also that the car fripped several times & that the jaws of life were indeed used to get him out of the vehicle.....they list his condition as serious.

update :

The Mississppi Highway Patrol has identified Freeman's passenger as Demaris Meyer. Freeman was driving Meyer's 1997 Nissan Maxima eastbound on Highway 32 when he ran off the edge of the road, flipping the car. We're told both were wearing seat belts at the time.
an editor for a local Mississippi newspaper tells the AP when one on-looker whipped out a cell phone at the scene of Morgan Freeman's accident and tried to snap a pic of the actor, Freeman joked, "no freebies, no freebies." Cops say Freeman was coherent and talking to police and paramedics.

UPDATE: Freeman's rep confirms the actor broke his shoulder and arm, but expects him to make a "good" recovery.

Prayers for Morgan Freeman and his family. Hope he recovers from his injuries 100%. He is one of the great actors of our generation. I loved his work in the Shawshank Redemption, Street Smart, Million Dollar Baby - well, can't think of a performance of his I haven't enjoyed.

I read elsewhere that he had surgery to repair damaged nerves in his arm. It sounds like his arm got really screwed up. I hope he heals and is 100%, but I wouldn't be surprised if the nerve damage causes loss of use of that arm. That would truly suck. Sounds like a long road to recovery.

Get well, Mr. Freeman.

Awful one two punch on the accident and divorce. Hope he recovers. Morgan is a great actor. I will always love his performance in Shawshank Redemption. Powerful.
