Morgan Freeman seriously injured in car wreck




Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman was injured Sunday night in a car crash in Mississippi, and is currently in serious condition at a hospital in Memphis, according to the Associated Press. A Mississippi Highway Patrol spokesman told WMC-TV in Memphis that the actor and a female passenger were injured when Freeman's Nissan Maxima went off the road; he overcorrected and the car flipped several times. A newspaper editor who arrived at the scene said a few bystanders were trying to snap photos of Freeman with a camera, and he joked, "No freebies, no freebies." According to TMZ, the actor's rep said he broke his arm and shoulder but expects to recover.
