Wal-Mart truck driver, Kevin Roper, accused of slamming into a Tracy Morgan's limo bus on the New Jersey Turnpike at 1 a.m. on Saturday morning, cannot go to his Twitter account for help in clearing his name. If, in fact the account does belong to him.. According to TMZ, the 35-year-old trucker, or someone with the same first and last name as Kevin Roper, also a Wal-Mart truck driver, is a proud road hog. The tweeter bio read, "Trying to win more than lose! Driving trucks for a living. It's my road. Move or get hit! #Walmart."
Around 8 p.m. on Saturday, on the same twitter account, another person posted, “my daddy is sorry for what happened please forgive him @RealTracyMorgan we watch martin all the time with hustle-man is our favorite”
According to New York Daily News, a friend of Kevin's reported that the Twitter account does belong to the Wal-Mart truck driver, Kevin Roper. However, Wal-Mart spokeswoman, Brooke Buchanan, denies that Kevin has any twitter accounts. She said, “Mr. Roper has not had and does not have any involvement on social media.”
The Twitter account has disappeared, but a copy of the alleged tweet can be seen on the NY Daily News site.
Three occupants of the limo bus, Tracy Morgan, Jeffrey Millea, and Ardie Fuqua Jr. are listed in critical condition. Harris Stanton was treated and released. Tyrone Gale, the driver was not injured. James McNair, also known as Jimmy Mack, from Peeksville, New York passed away in the crash.
Tracy had surgery to repair his broken leg on Sunday. He is still listed in critical condition, but reports say that he has become more responsive since the accident. He is expected to remain in the hospital for several weeks.
Before the accident, Tracy was on his way home after performing at the Dover Down Hotel & Casino in Dover, Delaware on Friday night. He also had two specially built tanks built by Brett Raymer and Wayde King from Animal Planet's "Tanked." One tank was for his shark and the other one was for his octopus.
If the Twitter account did belong to Kevin, he probably didn't mean the bio to read the way it sounded, especially now after the accident.
