Los Angeles: Veteran actor Morgan Freeman had a big scare on December 5, when a plane carrying him crash landed in Tunica, Mississippi, reported TheWrap.

The actor was not injured, but the plane was badly damaged as it careened off a runway during an emergency landing.

"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," Mr Freenam said in a statement.
