Morgan Freeman has reportedly been airlifted to hospital with serious injuries after a car crash in the US.

 

The actor's car is thought to have gone off a highway in Mississippi and flipped several times at around 11.30pm last night.

 

He is now in hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, where a spokeswoman described his condition as "serious".

 

A woman in the car was also taken to the Regional Medical Centre, known as the Med.

 

Freeman, 71, is currently appearing in new Batman film The Dark Knight. He won a best supporting actor Oscar for his role in 2004's Million Dollar Baby.

"They had to use the jaws of life to extract him from the vehicle," McFerrin said. "He was lucid, conscious. He was talking, joking with some of the rescue workers at one point."

 

McFerrin said bystanders converged on the scene trying to get a glimpse of the actor.

 

When one person tried to snap a photo with a cell phone camera, Freeman joked, "no freebies, no freebies," McFerrin said.

One of my favourite actors and from the interviews I've seen with him a true gent. Hope he pulls through.

Proper legend, love the Shawshank Redemption.

 

There seems to be a curse with this new Batman movie, the Joker is dead, Batman getting involved in punchups with his family and now this....  :undecided:
