Morgan Freeman Seriously Injured in Car Accident

August 4, 2008

Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman has been injured in car accident in Mississippi and is in serious condition in a hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.

The Associated Press is reporting that Freeman was in a wreck shortly before midnight Sunday and paramedics had to use the jaws of life to extract him from the vehicle.

Freeman is my all-time favorite actor from such films as Driving Miss Daisy, Shawshank Redemption, Million Dollar Baby, Gone Baby Gone, The Bucket List and most recently, The Dark Knight. Known for his reserved demeanor and authoritative speaking voice, Freeman has become one of Hollywood‘s most popular and respected actors. My prayers are out to Freeman, his family and his fans.
