According to a source very close to the "Dark Knight" star, Morgan Freeman is "resting comfortably in the hospital and is on medication for the pain."

"He broke his shoulder and arm, but he’s doing OK. He’s already laughing and joking around with the nurses."

Freeman was involved in a serious car accident around 11:30 Sunday night, just north of Ruleville, Miss. He was airlifted from the crash scene to a hospital in Memphis, Tenn.

He and his wife, Myrna, live near Charleston, Miss., on a 126-acre ranch with a main house, peach trees and horse stables.

Freeman built the ranch on the same land his grandparents worked, which is where he spent much of his childhood.

Thank goodness Freeman is OK.
