I just saw this on the news and was like whaaaat?? One of my favorite actors, Morgan Freeman, has been seriously injured in a car accident.
Apparently Media Takeout broke the story, and it made the rounds of the gossip sites, but now CNN’s reporting it, which makes me concerned that this is indeed a serious injury. The news is breaking and it leaves so many questions. Like, what the heck is Morgan Freeman doing cruising around Mississippi in a 97 Nissan Maxima at 11 p.m. on a Sunday?
According to reports, Freeman and his wife still reside in the area. The accident sounds terrifying — apparently his car went airborne, and the jaws of life were required to extract the venerable actor and his passenger. I hope they both pull through OK. I hope to update this later with happier news.
** update Morgan Freeman’s recovering having broken his shoulder and arm. His rep expects him to make a “good” recovery.
