Once emergency crews – using the jaws of life – removed Freeman and the passenger, both were airlifted from the accident scene to the Regional Medical Center at Memphis, where a spokesperson says Freeman is currently in serious condition.

“All I can say is one word: His condition is ‘serious,’ ” says Kathy Stringer, the hospital rep. She had no information on the other passenger.
