Morgan Freeman in Serious Condition After Car Crash

From MSNBC:
Academy Award winning actor Morgan Freeman was seriously injured in a car accident in Mississippi on Sunday night according to the Mississippi Highway Patrol.

Police report that Freeman, 71, was driving eastbound on Highway 32 near the town of Ruleville, Miss., around 11:30 p.m. when his car left the road and flipped several times.

Police say Freeman and a female passenger had to be extracted from the vehicle and the actor was flown to Regional Medical Center in Memphis, Tenn., where spokeswoman Kathy Stringer said he was listed in serious condition. There was no word on the condition of the passenger.

I hope Freeman is OK. The report goes on to say that he was sitting up and talking at the scene, which is encouraging. I'll be keeping an eye out for updates on this story as they become available.
