Morgan Freeman is in serious condition after being involved in a car accident in Mississippi late Sunday night.

The 71-year-old Oscar winner, who currently costars in the blockbuster The Dark Knight, was driving in Tallahatchie County when the accident happened at about 11:30 p.m. Sunday, Mississippi Highway Patrol public affairs officer Sgt. Ben Williams tells PEOPLE.

A passenger, whose name was not released, was also in the car with Freeman.

Memphis station WMC-TV reports that, according to Williams, Freeman's 1997 Nissan Maxima was heading eastbound on Mississippi Highway 32 when the car went off the edge of the road and overturned several times before coming to a stop.

Once emergency crews – using the jaws of life – removed Freeman and the passenger, both were airlifted from the accident scene to the Regional Medical Center at Memphis, where a spokesperson says Freeman is currently in serious condition.

"All I can say is one word: His condition is 'serious,' " says Kathy Stringer, the hospital rep. She had no information on the other passenger.

The news is he's got a broken arm, broken elbow and minor shoulder damage but he's in "good spirits" and expected to make a good recovery   They wasn't supposed to be alcohol or drugs involved and both of them were wearing seatbelts.

It said in today's paper that some people were taking photographs and Morgan Freeman jokingly said "no freebies....no freebies"   .....what a guy!

He's had a 4 1/2 operation to reconnect nerves and repair damage to his left arm and he's said about "being discharged as soon as possible"........considering he's 71 that's not bad going after a serious car crash!

There was a downpour on the stretch of road where he crashed......a ditch filled up with 8" of water, so experts are saying that could be why he crashed because the road was slippery.

They are already talking about a Dark Knight curse.... with Heath Ledger dying , this accident and Bale being arrested    

I did laugh last night on a show when the presenter was talking about the accident and said...."All messing aside who I really feel for is poor Miss Daisy in the back it would have scared the shit out of her"

  that's hilarious!

It said in today's paper he's divorcing his wife..... he's probably getting it in the media before the journos find out about it and start asking who his female passenger is!

It seems he and his wife split up in December so they were probably talking about a divorce anyway!

He's out of hospital now!
