Morgan Freeman Wears Glove to Cover Left Hand Injury
Since Car Crash Oscar Nominee Still Suffers From Left Hand Injury
Morgan Freeman appeared on Jay Leno's Tonight Show Friday Night ahead of the 82nd Annual Oscars Ceremony on Sunday March 7th, but while the 73-year-old actor is in excellent health he still suffers from the left hand injury he sustained when he was in a car crash in Mississippi in 2008. It was not noticeable when he was being interviewed by Jay Leno or in his recent films, but the actor still suffers from his injury.
He has undergone surgery on his left hand to repair the nerve damage, but his hand will never be the same again as it paralyzed and he now wears a glove on his left hand on his left hand to help reduce the swelling.

He told People Magazine:
"I suffered nerve damage and it hasn't gotten better. I can't move it,”
Morgan Freeman told People that as a person generally moves their hands about a million times a day, when you sustain a hand injury it is not something that you can ignore or even let rest without some movement.
The Oscar nominated actor for Invictus on Sunday March 7th, was driving in Mississippi in 2008 when he went off the road and flipped his car several times. He had to be airlifted to hospital and was in critical condition for a few days. A female passenger called Demaris Meyer was in the car with him.
