Morgan Freeman in Delta wreck -- UPDATE

Posted By on Mon, Aug 4, 2008 at 11:43 AM

Since it's almost next door and since he's one of our favorites: Morgan Freeman was seriously injured in a one-car wreck on a Mississippi highway last night and airlifted to Mempis for treatment.

Jim Harris reported for the Times on a visit with Freeman at his Mississippi restaurant back in 2003.

UPDATE: A reliable source of long standing passes along an e-mail from someone my source says is close to Freeman. Asked if Freeman was OK, the friend responded: "Yes, very lucky..just a broken arm and shoulder, with minor cuts and bruises." I know. Unsourced, third-hand. But there you have it. And now comes an updated report that adds an elbow to the injuries.

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
