You have to hand it to — they’re always the guys to go to when somebody runs their car off the edge of a road and flips it “several times,” like Morgan Freeman did last night around 11:30 pm near Ruleville, Misssippi . TMZ may be the spawn of satan, but when stuff like this happens, they’re right there (sometimes within minutes), they’re on it and they keep digging, etc.

Freeman and passenger Demaris Meyer, both of whom were seat-belted, were banged up. One source told TMZ that Freeman has “broken several ribs and injured his knee.” But he was reportedly alert and talking to the cops at the scene. Either Freeman and Demaris had both fallen asleep at the same time, or some sort of activity distracted Freeman from focusing on the road…right?
