The truck driver who allegedly fell asleep at the wheel has been charged in the horrific crash, which left comedian Tracy Morgan in a critical condition and his closest friend James McNair dead.
30 Rock star Morgan and his group were being driven from a show in Delaware back to New York City about early Saturday morning when the truck driver rear-ended their limousine bus and caused a deadly six car pile up on the New Jersey Turnpike.
Morgan’s ‘traumatized’ ex-wife has revealed ‘he’s not in good shape’ after being pulled from the wreckage with a broken leg among other injuries. He is reportedly in a critical but stable condition.
Morgan’s assistant Jeffrey Millea and comedian Ardie Fuqua are also in a critical condition while McNair died at the scene.
Comic Harris Stanton was treated and released from hospital. Two others in the limo were unhurt, including the driver.
Truck driver Kevin Roper has been charged with death by auto and also faces four counts of assault by auto. Bail was set at $50,000 and he is expected to surrender.
