Tracy Morgan in Critical Condition Following Fatal Six-Car Pile-Up
The actor and comedian’s press representative confirmed the news to Celebuzz in 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.”
Sgt. Gregory Williams of New Jersey State Police confirmed with the Associated Press that the accident occurred around 1 a.m. on the New Jersey Turnpike. Morgan was traveling with six others in a limo bus that overturned in a collision.
“The limo bus is the only vehicle that overturned,” Williams said. “Looks like one of the tractor-trailers may have rear-ended that limo bus, but that’s preliminary at this time.”
In addition to the limo bus, the AP reports that two tractor-trailers, an SUV and two cars were also involved in the accident. A spokesman for the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital confirmed that four patients are being treated there — three are in critical condition and one is in fair condition.
