Gene Hackman was hit by a car Friday afternoon while riding his bike in the Florida Keys, his rep has confirmed.

The 81-year-old actor was airlifted to a hospital -- the Keys being, well, islands -- where he underwent ‘routine tests’ after being ‘bumped from behind,’ Susan Madore said.


‘He’s suffered minor bumps and bruises and is already on his way home,’ she said of the two-time Oscar and three-time Golden Globe winner.

Lex Luthor fans can breathe a sigh of relief.
