Morgan Freeman Settles 2008 Car Accident Case

Since Morgan Freeman’s rollover car crash on Mississippi’s Highway 32 last August 3, 2008 which broke his arm and elbow, the actor has finally reached a settlement with the injured passenger, Demaris Meyers.


Meyers, who allegedly sustained permanent disability as a result of the car crash, sued Freeman for negligence. Likewise, she filed for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and property damage against Freeman. At the time of the accident, the actor was driving her 1997 Nissan Maxima.


Although the 71-year old actor refuted claims of negligence and even said that Meyers was comparatively negligent, the car crash lawsuit failed to make it to trial after the settlement.


The amount or nature of the settlement was not disclosed.
