Morgan Freeman just narrowly escaped disaster while on his way to film. The actor was on his way out of Mississippi when things went awry on his flight.
The Wrap: A plane carrying actor Morgan Freeman crash landed in Mississipi on Saturday after a tire blew out. The actor was not injured, but the plane was badly damaged.
“I was on my plane on the way to Texas to shoot a segment for The Story of God,” Freeman an Academy Award-winning actor, said in a statement to TheWrap. “Sometimes things don’t go as planned and a tire blew on take-off which caused other problems. But thanks to my excellent pilot Jimmy Hobson we landed safely without a scratch. I cannot say the same about my plane.”
No injuries were reported to either Freeman or his pilot.
The plane was headed to Houston, Texas, from Clarksdale, Mississippi. The crash landing was at the Tunica Airport in Mississippi..Splash
