Morgan Freeman is listed in “serious condition” after being extracted from a car wreck using the jaws of life on Sunday night. The accident took place in Tallahatchie County, Mississippi. Freeman was airlifted to the hospital as Tallahatchie is about 100 miles south of Memphis. A spokesperson for the Memphis Regional Medical Center has confirmed that Freeman is a patient at the hospital.
Oscar-winner Freeman was ‘lucid’ at the scene and was joking with rescue workers, according to Clay McFerrin, editor of Sun Sentinel in Charleston, Mississippi. Freeman is a native of the Memphis area and owns a blues club in Clarksdale, Mississippi.
Freeman’s instantly recognizable voice can be heard narrating everything from television commercials, to TV specials, to feature length films. Recently he recorded a new radio public service announcement for the national parks of the United States. Currently, Freeman can be seen in the feature film The Dark Knight.
