Morgan was aboard the limo bus with six other people when the vehicle overturned "near Cranbury Township at about 1 a.m." on Saturday morning, said Sgt. First Class Greg Williams to the AP. One member of that group, James McNail, died in the accident while three remain in critical condition.

The reason Tracy Morgan was on the road was because he was on his way to work in Delaware. Sadly, he never made it to his standup gig but rather landed in intensive care at Robert Wood Johnson Hospital Center in New Brunswick.

By way of background, Brooklyn-born Tracy Morgan is one of five kids in a family that was nurtured by a single mother. The 45-year-old won an Emmy nomination for his role in "30 Rock" five years ago. He was one of the not for primetime players on "Saturday Night Live" and had his own small screen show a decade ago that showed his skills as both an actor and a comedian.

In an eery turn of events, before the accident that sent Morgan to the intensive care unit of a New Jersey hospital, he sent a message that said, "Road life is a good life."

Meanwhile, details about the crash and the aftermath are scant. The AP reports that the New Jersey Turnpike was closed after the crash for a full five hours. Stay tuned for more details on the accident and Tracy Morgan's condition as that news becomes available.
