Morgan Freeman has reportedly been involved in a serious car accident in Mississippi:
The Dark Knight star was said to be travelling with an unnamed female passenger just north of the small town of Ruleville at around 11.30pm local time on Sunday (03Aug08) when the crash occurred. No other vehicles were involved.
According to online reports, Freeman was airlifted to a hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, where he is currently receiving treatment. The extent of his injuries are unknown, but state troopers tell website TMZ.com that the actor was talking at the scene of the accident before he was taken to hospital.The condition of Freeman’s passenger is also unknown.
Alcohol is not believed to have been a factor in the accident, although further details were unavailable.
Good news is Morgan is said to be in “good spirits” despite the fact that he’s suffering from several broken ribs and a bad knee injury.
Morgan reportedly lost control of his car, flipping it several times. “They had to use the Jaws of Life to extract him from the vehicle. He was lucid, conscious. He was talking, joking with some of the rescue workers at one point.”
Diana Ross’ daughter was also involved in an accident over the weekend:
The daughter of Motown legend Diana Ross has been hospitalised after being involved in a car crash.
Chudney Ross, the singer’s daughter with Robert Silberstein, was apparently pulling out of a parking lot in Malibu when her Land Rover collided with another vehicle.
According to TMZ Ross and a passenger were taken to a local hospital as a precautionary measure although no serious injuries were suffered.
Two other people in the other vehicle were also sought medical attention for neck and back injuries. Ross, 33, was later visited at the hospital by her sister Tracee [“Girlfriends’ star].
We wish both Morgan and Chudney a speedy and full recovery.
