KEY WEST (CBS) — Actor Gene Hackman was airlifted to a Florida hospital Friday afternoon after being hit by a car.

The 81-year-old actor was hit by the car while riding his bike in Key West.

Hackman’s rep, Susan Madore, said the actor was airlifted because he was on an island and there was never any serious injury as previously reported.

The actor suffered minor bumps and bruises and was released from a Florida hospital Friday evening.
