Actor Gene Hackman Hospitalized After Being Struck by Car
The 81-year-old, who reports claim was not wearing a helmet, was airlifted to Ryder Trauma Center in Miami with “serious” injuries, according to the highway patrol.
Highway patrol reports that the veteran actor was thrown from his bike when a Toyota Tundra pickup struck his bicycle’s rear tire. Alcohol reportedly did not play a factor in the crash.
Susan Madore, Hackman’s publicist, downplayed the incident, saying, “Gene’s fine. … Just a few bumps and bruises. He is already on his way home.”
