Actor Gene Hackman Hospitalized After Being Struck by Car

Gene Hackman Hit by Car in Key West, FloridaActor Gene Hackman is reportedly “fine” after being hit by a car while riding his bike in Key West, Florida Friday afternoon.

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.”

My thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Hackman for a full and speedy recovery.
