Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman was in serious condition at a Memphis hospital after being involved in a car accident Sunday night, according to hospital officials.
CNN affilliate WMC of Memphis reported that he was in a car accident in Tallahatchie County, Mississippi, about 100 miles south of Memphis, late Sunday.
According to The Associated Press, Freeman was “lucid” when the rescue team found his car.
“They had to use the jaws of life to extract him from the vehicle,” Clay McFerrin, editor of Sun Sentinel in Charleston, Mississippi, said. “He was lucid, conscious. He was talking, joking with some of the rescue workers at one point.”
Morgan Freeman, ladies and gentlemen: tough, classy, and 71 years old.
