Friday, June 20, brought good news on “30 Rock” star, Tracy Morgan’s condition. After being in the hospital for two weeks due to injuries sustained in a car accident, Morgan was moved to a rehabilitation center to continue his long road to recovery.
The six-vehicle accident, which left Morgan in critical condition, took place June 7 on the New Jersey Turnpike. The crash between a Walmart tractor-trailer, driven by Kevin Roper, and Morgan’s limo bus also left Morgan’s assistant Jeffrey Millea, and comedians Harris Stanton and Ardie Fuqua injured. Comedian James McNair, 62, who was also on board, was killed.
CNN reports that Morgan’s publicist, Lewis Kay, stated, "Tracy has been transferred to an undisclosed rehab center, where he is expected to remain for the next few weeks. While he is continuing to show signs of improvement, he still has a long way to go."
In a preliminary report sent out Thursday by the National Transportation Safety Board states,
Roper, 35, was said to have been going 20 mph over the posted speed limit at the time of the crash and had been awake for over 24 hours. Roper plead not-guilty to the charges of vehicular homicide and assault by auto and is out on a $50,000 bond.
Well wishes continue to pour in through social media for Morgan’s recovery. #106andPark tweets, “@RealTracyMorgan went from ‘critical condition’ to ‘fair condition’. Get well soon, Tracy!”
