Spike TV's "Don Rickles: One Night Only" - Show

Comedian and 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan has been moved to a rehabilitation center to continue his recovery after a fatal traffic accident two weeks ago.

His publicist confirmed the move on Friday.

“Tracy has been transferred to an undisclosed rehab center, where he is expected to remain for the next few weeks,” according to Lewis Kay.

“While he is continuing to show signs of improvement, he still has a long way to go,” Kay said in a statement.

In the statement released Friday by his publicist, Morgan also said he and his wife Megan “wanted to publicly express their deepest gratitude to everyone at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital for the unbelievable care and attention they provided him.”

Morgan was injured when a Wal-Mart tractor-trailer collided with his limo bus on the New Jersey Turnpike during the early morning hours of June 7. The 45-year-old actor suffered broken ribs, a broken nose, and a broken leg. His friend and fellow comedian, James McNair, was killed in the crash.

The semi-truck that rear-ended Morgan’s limo was traveling 20 mph over the speed limit and its driver was almost at his drive time limit. That is the finding in a preliminary report by the National Transportation Safety Administration released Thursday.

Police said in a criminal complaint driver Kevin Roper had been awake for more than 24 hours at the time of the crash. The 35-year-old Roper has pleaded not guilty to charges that include vehicular homicide and assault by auto.

Roper is free on a $50,000 bond.
