    Morgan Freeman injured in car accident

    AP -

    Actor Morgan Freeman is injured in car accident


    Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman was injured in a car accident late Sunday night and is in a hospital in Memphis, Tenn.

    Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Kathy Stringer said Freeman, 71, is in serious condition. The hospital is about 90 miles north of the accident scene in rural Tallahatchie County in the Mississippi Delta.

    Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman Sgt. Ben Williams confirmed Freeman was in a wreck shortly before midnight Sunday, but said he was still gathering information and had few details Monday.

    Clay McFerrin, editor of Sun Sentinel in Charleston, said he arrived at the accident scene on Mississippi Highway 32 soon after it happened about 4 miles west of Charleston, not far from where Freeman owns a home with his wife.

    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."

    McFerrin said bystanders converged on the scene trying to get a glimpse of the actor.

    When one person tried to snap a photo with a cell phone camera, Freeman joked, "no freebies, no freebies," McFerrin said.

    The hospital where Freeman is being treated is commonly known as The Med, and is an acute-care teaching facility that serves patients within 150 miles of Memphis.

    Sad news. I wish him the best.

    When one person tried to snap a photo with a cell phone camera, Freeman joked, "no freebies, no freebies," McFerrin said.
    Certain people have absolutely NO sense of decency. A man's in a car wreck and, for all they know, might end up dying, and they're wanting a picture with their cell phone? Gimme a break.

    Wow, I had no idea Freeman was 71 years old.

    He doesn't look it at all.
