Morgan Freeman's Private Plane Makes Emergency Landing & Skids Off Runway

When the pilot tried to make an emergency landing, the jet didn’t stop at the end of the runway and ended up in a dirt field.

“I was on my plane on the way to Texas to shoot a segment for The Story of God. Sometimes things don’t go as planned and a tire blew on take-off which caused other problems. But thanks to my excellent pilot Jimmy Hobson, we landed safely without a scratch. I cannot say the same about my plane. I appreciate the concern and prayers for our safety,” Morgan told GossipCop.

Thankfully, no one was hurt!
