Actor Morgan Freeman in hospital after car crash in Mississippi

WMC in Memphis is reporting Academy Award winning actor Morgan Freeman was airlifted to a Memphis hospital after a serious car accident in Mississippi.

Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Kathy Stringer says Freeman is in serious condition.

Mississippi Highway Patrol said the 71-year-old "Dark Knight" star was in an accident around 11:30 last night on Hwy 32 in Tallahatchie County.           

Officers say the 1997 Nissan Maxima he was driving went off the road, overcorrected and flipped several times.

Freeman and a female passenger had to be extracted by rescuers and flown to a Memphis hospital.
