The female passenger in Morgan Freeman’s car who was seriously injured after a horrific car accident is filing a lawsuit against the actor.
The woman who was injured in a car crash with Morgan Freeman last year claims the actor was boozing all over town before he got behind the wheel.
According to a lawsuit filed today in Mississippi federal court, Demaris Meyer claims on the night of the crash, she first met up with Freeman at dinner — where she noticed “throughout the course of dinner and afterward drinks were consumed by Freeman.”
Meyer then says she left dinner and met up with Freeman and others at a friend’s home. She claims Freeman “had at least one more drink” while there. She claims Freeman then invited her to stay at his home for the night — guaranteeing her not only her own bedroom, but her “own house.” She says she agreed.
Meyer claims at around 11:30 PM, while Freeman drove her to his home, Morgan lost control of the car and “ran off of the right side of the highway.” Meyer says she suffered a broken left wrist and right scapula, a torn labrum in her right shoulder and numerous bruises and lacerations.
At a press conference today, Meyer said she and Freeman were “just friends” — despite widespread rumors that she was his mistress.
Meyer is suing for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, permanent disability (short term memory loss) and additional damages.
