Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman was in a "serious" condition in hospital on Monday after being involved in a car crash, authorities said.
The 71-year-old star, who won an Academy Award for his role in 2004's "Million Dollar Baby," was hospitalized after the crash late Sunday near Ruleville, Mississippi.
Details of Freeman's condition and injuries were unclear, however a spokesman for the Memphis Regional Medical Center described them as "serious." The condition of a passenger traveling with the actor was unknown.
"Mr. Freeman is listed in serious condition but we have no information on the condition of his passenger," hospital spokeswoman Kathy Stringer told AFP.
The Los Angeles Times quoted a source close to Freeman as saying the actor was nursing broken bones but "resting comfortably."
"He broke his shoulder and arm, but he's doing OK. He's already laughing and joking around with the nurses," the source was quoted as saying.
Freeman, who is currently starring in Batman blockbuster "The Dark Knight" was hospitalized after the car he was driving went off the road and flipped several times reports said, citing the Mississippi Highway Patrol.
Freeman and his passenger were airlifted to hospital.
Freeman won the statuette for best supporting actor for his role as former boxer Eddie "Scrap-Iron" Dupris in Clint Eastwood's boxing drama "Million Dollar Baby," and is famous for his authoritative, calm voice that has been used to narrate documentaries and commercials as well as film roles.
The prolific actor, born in the southern US state of Tennessee, began acting in theater productions in 1967 before moving on to film, where he has carved out a career from playing wise and determined characters.
He played the US president in the disaster flick "Deep Impact" (1997) and portrayed an even more powerful character -- God -- in "Bruce Almighty" (2003), a comedy starring Jim Carrey.
Freeman earned the first of his four Oscar nominations with his 1987 role as a tough pimp in "Street Smart." Although he failed to win best supporting actor, he was rewarded for his role by US film critic associations.
His moving portrayal of a chauffeur in the segregated US South in "Driving Miss Daisy" (1989) won him a Golden Globe in the United States and a Silver Bear at the Berlin film festival. He also earned his second Oscar nomination for the film, this time for best actor.
In the moving 1989 drama "Glory," Freeman played a soldier in the first all-black volunteer company to fight for the North in the US Civil War.
He starred alongside Kevin Costner in "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves" (1991) and with Brad Pitt in the crime thriller "Seven" (1995).
The father of four earned his third Oscar nomination, a best actor nod, for his role in "The Shawshank Redemption" (1994), based on a Stephen King novella about a banker who is wrongly convicted of murder.
Freeman is currently working on another collaboration with Eastwood, "The Human Factor," where he is due to play former South African president Nelson Mandela in a film based on the 1995 Rugby World Cup.

Here is the updates I got about Freeman.......AP...stay kool my man!

Morgan Freeman has been up walking around as he recovers in a Memphis hospital from injuries after his car crash. His publicist says he's doing well after four-and-a-half-hour surgery and recovery to reconnect nerves and repair damage to his left arm and hand. She says he's "looking forward to his release as soon as possible." An officer with the Mississippi Highway Patrol says Freeman's passenger was still in the hospital as of Monday night and like Freeman, was in "good spirits."
