Tracy Morgan’s rep has released a statement:
“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,” rep Lewis Kay said in a statement.
“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.”
One of our favorite comedians, Tracy Morgan, was involved in a six car accident this morning in New Jersey. He is currently in intensive care, according to CNN.
The former “Saturday Night Live” cast member and “30 Rock” star was riding in a limo bus when the accident occurred in Mercer County, said Sgt. Gregory William of New Jersey State Police.
In addition to the bus, the wreck involved two tractor-trailers and an SUV, he said. He did not provide specifics on what happened.
One person was killed and four others hospitalized with injuries, authorities said.
Peter Haigney, a spokesman for the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, said four patients are getting treated at the hospital.
Three are in critical condition while one is in fair condition, he said.
The hospital said that a man named Tracy Morgan was among those in critical condition, but citing privacy laws, declined to confirm it is the actor. State police confirmed his identity to CNN.
Comedian Ardie Fuqua opened for Tracy Morgan at last night’s show at Dover Downs Casino. After the show he took to Instagram, showing the inside of the vehicle before the crash occurred. He captioned the below photo:
This is what it looks like from the stage to see a standing ovation from 1500 people. Then we traveled back to NYC in style in a luxury Mercedes Sprinter. Road life is a good life! #tracymorgan
Our prayers are with all of those involved in the crash. We hope Tracy recovers quickly.
