Freeman May Have Been Driving Dazy

8/4/2008 1:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Morgan Freeman may have fallen asleep at the wheel last night right before his bad car wreck.

The actor was driving on Highway 32 in Tallahatchie County when he apparently lost control, flipping his car several times.

WHBQ
in Memphis is reporting Freeman was on his way home to Charleston when the smash-up happened. Bill Luckett, Freeman's friend and co-owner of Freeman's restaurant Madidi, said his buddy was sitting up and talking at the hospital.

One source tells TMZ that Freeman has broken several ribs and injured his knee. His female passenger, we're told, had to be cut out of the car using the Jaws of Life. A source says she's suffering from bumps and bruises, but is "all in all in good condition."

On wikipedia it says he died August 4, 2008, hopefully not true but i know whoever writes stuff on that site usually jump the gun on things like this.

The plot thickens..... he was driving, it was late at night, he was headed home to his local ranch....let's hope the woman in the car with him was his wife..... I guess he WAS driving Miss Daisy. Maybe she was "distracting" him????

Relax guys, he will be OK, broken arm & shoulder, you don't die from those.....

So, Morgan Freeman is in an accident that could have cost him his life, but people like Paris Hilton still roam the earth? What a wonderful world we live in.
