JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Academy Award winning actor Morgan Freeman has been injured in car accident in Mississippi and is in a Memphis hospital.
Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Kathy Stringer says Freeman is in serious condition.
The hospital, commonly known as The Med, is an acute-care teaching facility that serves patients within 150 miles of Memphis.
Ashley Norris, manager of the Ground Zero Blues Club in Clarksdale that is owned by Freeman, confirmed the actor was in a wreck. Norris said she had no other details.
The accident apparently occurred in Tallahatchie County Mississippi, but the sheriff's department referred calls to the Mississippi Highway Patrol. A highway patrol spokesman was not immediately available for comment.

A lot of mixed stories going around. Fox says a woman was driving and Freeman is expected to be OK.
Sure hope so; he's a greyt actor.This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.

Now I know driving at a high rate of speed is often dangerous. But sometimes a man just has to feel the wind in his hair. Funny thing these automobiles. I don't quite remember when we lost control but I sure do remember thinking that my meeting the almighty was inevitable. Oh, I've lived a good life and have no regrets, I was just saddened that it might end this way. I guess a man really doesn't know when it's coming.

According to Fox News, which I am still watching, Freeman suffered a borken arm and elbow. His car flipped and rolled several times. They say he is in good spirits. He is scheduled for surgery. He is expected to make a good recovery. Although the recovery could take up to 4 months.

What I enjoy about this particular actor most is his voice. Most distinctive.At Coretta Scott King's funeral in early 2006, Ethel Kennedy, the widow of Robert Kennedy, leaned over to him and whispered, "The torch is being passed to you." "A chill went up my spine," Obama told an aide. (Newsweek)
