MEMPHIS, Tennessee (AP) — Morgan Freeman is doing well after surgery to reconnect nerves and repair damage to his left arm and hand after rescuers used a jaws-of-life machine to free him and a passenger from the wreckage of his car, his publicist said Tuesday.

Freeman, 71, and Demaris Meyer, 48, of Memphis, Tennessee, were taken to the Regional Medical Center in Memphis following the Sunday night accident on a dark stretch of rural Mississippi Delta highway in Tallahatchie County.

State troopers said the car careened off the highway and flipped end-over-end before landing upright in a ditch.

The surgery Monday night “lasted approximately four and a half hours including recovery and he is in good spirits and was visiting family members this morning,” Donna Lee, the Oscar-winning actor’s publicist, said in a statement.

“He was walking this A.M., and is looking forward to his release as soon as possible,” Lee said.

Freeman was airlifted about 90 miles to the Regional Medical Center where he was treated for a broken arm, broken elbow and shoulder damage, Lee said.

Get well soon Mr. Freeman!!
