Two-time Oscar winning actor Gene Hackman was in a bicycle collision while riding his bike in the Florida Keys, according to MSNBC. Mr. Hackman’s spokesman said a car bumped him from behind. Because he was on an island, he was airlifted to hospital, but suffered only minor bumps and bruises, and has been released.
