Hollywod Corner: Dark Knight actor in serious
August 05, 2008
celebrated character actor, multiple
Oscar nominee and supporting actor from
The Dark Knight, Morgan Freeman was
in a car crash late Sunday might (Aug
3). He was driving close to his hometown
in Mississippi with a female friend
when their car went off the highway
–some say the car was actually
in the air for sometime – and
into a deep ditch. He has been airlifted
to a hospital in
Memphis, where he lies in a critical condition.
Some reports say no drinking had been involved,
while others say Freeman and his friend had
been "hitting up bars and they had been
doing a lot of drinking."
The latest update on this is that a surgery
will be performed, and the actor is expected
to make a recovery soon.
