Freeman's Attorney: "Car Occupant Was Partly To Blame"

Morgan Freeman's attorney claims a woman who was with the actor when he wrecked a car in Mississippi last August was partly to blame for the accident, though he won't elaborate.
Demaris Meyer is suing Freeman in U.S. District Court in Oxford, claiming Freeman was negligent when the car he was driving ran off the road and flipped.
Both Meyer and Freeman were seriously injured in the crash on a two-lane highway about five miles west of Freeman's home.
Meyer sued Freeman in February for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, permanent disability and property damage.
Freeman attorney Jack H. Hayes Jr. responded Friday in a four-page court document denying most of the allegations.
Meyer has denied reports she's romantically linked to Freeman.

    She shouldn't have had her head in his lap while he was driving down the road.
