There’s some tragic news coming out of New Jersey this morning as TMZ is reporting that actor/comedian Tracy Morgan is, along with two others, in critical condition following a fatal six-car accident that occurred when Morgan’s limo bus overturned on the Turnpike near Robbinsville. CNN confirmed the news, naming passenger James McNair, 63, as the current sole fatality in the ordeal. Another man involved is said to be hospitalized, but is in fair condition.
Morgan launched his career with a ten-year stint on “Saturday Night Live,” but is likely best known for playing his fictional alter-ego, EGOT-winner Tracy Jordan, on NBC’s “30 Rock.” He’s appeared on the big screen in films like The Longest Yard, Cop Out and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, also lending his voices to projects like Rio, Rio 2 and the upcoming The Boxtrolls
Hopefully, we’ll soon be hearing some more positive news regarding the condition of Morgan and the other passengers, so check back for details as they become available. In the meantime, please join us in wishing a speedy recovery to all involved.
