Morgan Freeman in an accident!

I hope I'm not sending out negative energy, here! A friend of mine alerted me to this news update:

Freeman still in serious condition after car crash

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Morgan Freeman remained in serious condition Tuesday with a broken arm and elbow after rescuers used a jaws-of-life machine to free him and a passenger from their car after it crashed on a stretch of rural Mississippi Delta highway this weekend.

Freeman, 71, and Demaris Meyer, 48, of Memphis, Tenn., were taken to the Regional Medical Center in Memphis following the accident in Tallahatchie County on Sunday night.

State troopers said the car careened off the highway and overturned twice before landing upright in a ditch.

Donna Lee, Freeman's publicist, said the Oscar-winning actor, who underwent surgery late Monday, has a broken arm, broken elbow and minor shoulder damage "but is in good spirits." Lee said "The Dark Knight" star is expected to make a full recovery.

Makes me think twice about posting on any other celebrities. Am I like the death cat or something? OK, I'm overreacting. I mean, this is only the first time this has happened. Dave Dickerson, aka the Bourbon Cowboy, has noted many times he's watched a movie only to see a lead actor die shortly thereafter. So it's Not Just Me.
