Tracy Morgan critical but responsive after deadly car wreck
Comedian Tracy Morgan remained responsive but in critical condition early Monday following a deadly car wreck that left one man dead.
Morgan’s publicist said he’s showing signs of improvement.
“He has been more responsive, which is an incredibly encouraging sign,” publicist Lewis Kay said Sunday.
The wreck took place about 1 a.m. Saturday when the limo van Morgan was in was hit by a tractor-trailer on the New Jersey Turnpike, police said.
The collision killed Morgan’s fellow passenger, comedian James McNair — who performed under the name Jimmy Mack.
Comedians Ardie Fuqua and Harris Stanton were among the injured, as was a man named Jeffrey Millea.
Morgan sustained several injuries from the crash, including broken ribs, a broken nose, leg and femur. He underwent surgery on his leg Sunday. He is expected to remain in the hospital for several weeks.
Walmart truck driver Kevin Roper, 35, was charged with one count of death by auto and four counts of assault by auto. He turned himself in to police and was released on $50,000 bail Saturday.
