Both Meyer and Freeman were seriously injured in the car crash.
In this car accident personal injury claim, Meyer claims that Freeman was was drinking that night – though it stops short of saying he was intoxicated. No criminal charges were filed against the actor, who ran off the side of a road on a two-lane highway in Charlestonin the Mississippi River Delta, about five miles west of Freeman’s home.
Freeman admits that he was partly at fault for the roll-over car accident. He also claims that Meyer was at fault as well but would not reveal how she helped cause the accident.
