Morgan Freeman Accident Update

As we had reported earlier this morning, Morgan Freeman was involved in a "serious accident" in Mississippi and had to be airlifted to Regional Medical Center in Memphis, Tennessee after suffering from multiple injuries.

Good news is Morgan is said to be in "good spirits" despite the fact that he's suffering from several broken ribs and a bad knee injury.

Morgan reportedly lost control of his car, flipping it several times. "They had to use the Jaws of Life to extract him from the vehicle. He was lucid, conscious. He was talking, joking with some of the rescue workers at one point."

We'll keep you posted on his status!
