A hospital spokeswoman says Morgan Freeman has been discharged from the Regional Medical Center in Memphis, where he was treated for injuries from a car wreck.

The 71-year-old actor was treated at the Regional Medical Center in Memphis after a car crash in neighboring Mississippi on Sunday left him with a broken arm, broken elbow and shoulder damage.

Also injured in the crash was Demaris Meyer, a 48-year-old Memphis woman, who has been described as a friend of the Oscar-winning actor.

While Freeman was hospitalized, his lawyer said the actor and his wife of 24 years are getting a divorce.

Freeman's lawyer, Bill Luckett, told the Memphis Commercial-Appeal newspaper that the divorce action is pending. Freeman's wife is Myrna Colley-Lee.
