I know this sort of story doesn’t really fall in my usual wheelhouse, but I’m a fan of Tracy Morgan and this story really got to me. Here are the details from TMZ.
Tracy Morgan was in a horrific 6-vehicle accident early Saturday morning in New Jersey and is now fighting for his life. Morgan was riding in a limo bus on the NJ Turnpike after a concert … when it was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer — at least that’s the way it now appears. Tracy’s limo overturned in the wreck. One person in the limo was killed, and three others are in critical condition, including the former star of “SNL” and “30 Rock.”
Tracy’s opening act was also in the limo. It sounds like a tractor trailer driver fell asleep at the wheel and rear-ended a line of slow moving traffic. The tractor trailer appears to have hit the limo bus first, causing a chain reaction involving another tractor trailer, two cars and an SUV.
Tracy was returning home after a comedy gig in Delaware.
