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

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

"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," Freenam said in a statement.

No injuries were reported to either the 78-year-old "Million Dollar Baby" actor or his pilot.

The plane was headed to Houston, Texas, from Clarksdale, Mississippi.
