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.

Bella, I like the idea of Morgan riding in a 97 mazima. It means he is being true to himself. He has to need to show off, he money and we know he has money.Only broke people need to show off. Get well soon Morgan P.S. Bella, do you know that Bernie Mac is ill too.

Chic Noir, oh I didn't mean to imply that I don't like that Morgan Freeman's keeping it real. I just was surprised. I really just kind of see him in a suit, sitting in the back of a Maybach, cruising through the streets of LA en route to a studio. (yes, that's my mental image of the lives of most celebs). I heard about Bernie Mac's pneumonia! But I heard that he's doing better -- http://www.mtv.com/movies/news/articles/1592071/story.jhtml

Wow what an accident will uncover. the car was for the passenger. The story vairies on who she is and what she is to Morgan. It seems that he will be fine, so thats great.
