Last Friday, Gene Hackman was riding his bicycle in the Florida Keys when he was struck from behind by a pickup truck. The impact threw Hackman from his bicycle onto the grassy shoulder of the street. The cause of the bicycle accident is still under investigation.
The 81-year-old actor was unconscious and bleeding from multiple places after the accident, having suffered both head and body injuries. He was quickly airlifted to a Florida trauma hospital. The cause of the bicycle accident is currently under investigation.
Gene Hackman’s representative told the press that he was released in stable condition later that day, suffering nothing worse than a few bumps and bruises – an extremely lucky break, considering the fact that he was not wearing a helmet.
