JACKSON, Miss. - Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman was in a hospital in Memphis, Tenn., on Monday after being injured in a car accident near his home in Mississippi.

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.

Freeman in ‘good spirits’ after crash

OSCAR-winning actor Morgan Freeman was in “good spirits” and confident of making a full recovery after a car crash left him with multiple broken bones, his spokesman said yesterday.

The 71-year-old star, who was due to start filming his role as Nelson Mandela next year in The Human Factor, a film about South Africa during the 1994 Rugby World Cup , is being treated in a hospital in Memphis following the single-vehicle accident on Sunday night in Mississippi.

The spokesman said Freeman had suffered a “broken arm and elbow, and minor shoulder damage” but was talking and in “good spirits”.

“He’s having a little bit of surgery this afternoon or tomorrow to help correct the damage,” she said. “He says he’s looking forward to a full recovery.”

Freeman, a star of Batman blockbuster The Dark Knight, was hospitalised after the car he was driving went off the road and rolled several times.

The condition of a woman passenger travelling with the actor is unknown.




What's happening with all the 'Dark Knight' actors? Damn! :shakehead:

Good to hear Morgan is doing better though :thumbsup:
