Actor Morgan Freeman injured in car accident

Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman has been injured in car accident in Mississippi and is in a hospital in Memphis. 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 240 kilometers 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 wasn't immediately available for comment.
