His publicist confirmed Tuesday, August 5 that he's doing well after surgery "to reconnect nerves and to repair damage to his left arm and hand" as a result of a car accident Sunday night, August 3.

A representative for Morgan Freeman previously confirmed that he's in "good spirits" following a car accident he experienced late Sunday night, August 3 in Mississippi despite serious injury he suffered as a result of the crash. An update on his condition was released by his publicist Donna Lee who said Tuesday, August 5 that the actor is doing well after surgery.

"Morgan is doing well after surgery last night to reconnect nerves and to repair damage to his left arm and hand," Lee said. "The surgery lasted approximately four and a half hours, including recovery, and he is in good spirits and was visiting with family members this morning."

One of Freeman's business partners who visited him in the hospital reported the star "is up and walking around. He's really sore, but he's doing better. He's hoping to be out of the hospital by Thursday."

Lee verified Freeman's business partner's statement, saying "The Dark Knight" actor "was walking this A.M., and is looking forward to his release as soon as possible." Lee also added that Freeman expressed his gratitude for the many support people have given him in the wake of the car accident. "Thanks from Morgan to the many who sent good wishes and prayers," Lee said.

As of early Tuesday afternoon, August 5 Kathy Stringer, a spokeswoman for Memphis' Regional Medical Center where Freeman was being treated, still listed the actor in serious condition. There has yet immediate word on his passenger Demaris Meyer as of press time.
