American comedian and actor, Tracey Morgan is in critical condition after a nasty accident in New Jersey, USA.
The 45 year old actor was returning from a comedy gig with four friends in the early hours of Saturday morning when the accident occurred. It was reported that Morgan sustained a number of injuries including a broken leg, broken ribs, a broken nose, a broken femur and other injuries.
Friend to Morgan, also a comedian who performed under the name of Jimmy, James McNair, was the only fatality of the incident out of the four other passengers on the limo.
The driver responsible for the accident, Kevin Roper, 35, claimed he did not see that traffic was slow in moving. It is believed he hit the SUV from the back with the tractor-trailor he was driving, which caused the limousine to spin and then overturn.
CNN reports that Roper, has been charged with one count of death by auto and four counts of assault by auto.
Morgan’s publicist, Lewis Kay, released a statement saying:
“Tracy remains in critical condition at Robert Wood Johnson Hospital. He sustained these injuries in an accident that occurred early this morning as one of several passengers in a chauffeured SUV returning from a tour date in Delaware. His family is now with him and he is receiving excellent care. We don’t anticipate much of a change in his condition today but will provide a further update once more information becomes available.”
