Morgan Freeman hospitalized after car crash

August 4th, 2008 // 49 Comments

Apparently it’s Sobering News Day on The Superficial. Morgan Freeman was seriously injured in an accident late last night and is in serious condition at a Mississippi hospital. His car flipped several times after veering off the highway and rescue workers needed to use the jaws of life to get the 71-year-old actor out. Though he appeared to be coherent and even joked with onloookers, according to the AP:

“They had to use the jaws of life to extract him from the vehicle,” McFerrin said. “He was lucid, conscious. He was talking, joking with some of the rescue workers at one point.”
McFerrin said bystanders converged on the scene trying to get a glimpse of the actor.
When one person tried to snap a photo with a cell phone camera, Freeman joked, “no freebies, no freebies,” McFerrin said.

When Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman gets pulled out of a massive wreck, you don’t try to take his picture with your phone. You shake the man’s hand, dammit! I’m telling you there’s no such as etiquette these days.

The Superficial wishes Morgan a speedy recovery and not just because I’m afraid to see someone else build Batman kickass shit in the next movie. (But if it ends up being Ashton Kutcher, I’ll kill myself.)

    First!!

    Thats pretty upsetting :-(

  2. veggi

    I hope he gets prostate cancer.

  3. He’s the best (supporting) actor of our time! Although, it looks like in real life as well as in movies, he needs a white guy in the driver’s seat.

    He is my favorite actor. He is seeking someone online now. I saw him at “”"”"”"”"”W e a l t h y L o v e s.co m”"”"”"”"”" last week. What kind of relationship is he looking for on that site?

    Morgan is an outstanding actor and he seems to be a really nice guy. I wish him to get well quickly.

  6. it's me Fuckers!

    he’s 71?! Holy shit! He looks awesome!! I hope he gets better soon.

    I wonder how many emergency workers thought that using the jaws of life on Morgan was like tonging a recalcitrant sausage off the barbecue after it slipped between the gaps on the grill.

  8. I hear Shia Lebouf was driving.

    I’m handcuffed to a fence in Mississippi.
    My girlfriend blows a boozy good-bye kiss.
    I see flying squirrels and nightmares of stigmata.
    Then awakening to find my Trans-Am gone.

    “His car flipped several times after veering off the highway”

    I’m telling you, those roadside crack dealers are very distracting to … certain … drivers.

    I wonder if Driving Ms. Daisy into a ditch was on his Bucket List

  12. Vanquish

    Get well soon!

    I suggest we get together, kidnap Dane Cook, bring him to Morgan Freeman’s hospital room, and sacrifice him in a voodoo lifeforce-swapping ceremony so Morgan Freeman may live. Also, we could throw in Carlos Mencia in case that might bring back Heath Ledger. Win-win all around.

  14. justlikehoney1

    @13 – Awesome idea. Let’s do it!!!

  15. Rick

    Did one of the EMTs do a gravelly voice-over about life and death and lessons learned while they were using the jaws of life?

  16. hey, don’t be dissin’ people with camera phones. it is a job for some…

  17. pete

    Happens all the time when the driver’s watching porn on the dashboard DVD player. In this case, I guarantee you it was the “Pigtails and Round Asses” series.

  18. sxbby963

    Huh. #2 and 3, you both are just sick. I think you should both STFU, assholes.

  19. Nashvegas

    @#4……Seriously can you just die now? We all know YOU were last seen on ***********D o n k e y D e l i g h t s.com************ looking for love so can you just stick to bestiality or better yet go fuck yourself?

  20. Horse

    If Freeman dies Nolan will surely use this to intorduce us to Robin, which will be played, unfortunately, by Ashton Kutcher…

  21. yabadabadude

    I thought he died a few years ago. Oh well, it’s not too late.

  22. Matthew

  23. bootlips

    If he was still in Africa he would have starved to death a long time ago.

  24. Alicia

  38. Natalie

    That’s unfortunate, I wish the best for him and his family.

    Also, I can’t believe he’s 71! He looks so much younger! I would have guessed 58.

  39. Mr. IHT

    Get well Mr. Freemen, but just in case Samuel L Jackson, would make a kick ass replacement in the next batman movie
