Tracy Morgan In Intensive Care After NJ Crash

30 Rock star Tracy Morgan is in intensive care following a serious crash on the New Jersey Turnpike north of Trenton, state police confirm.

The comedian’s tour bus was one of the six vehicles impacted when the driver of a Wal-Mart tractor-trailer came upon slow-moving traffic in the northbound lanes at Exit 7A near Cranbury Township and was unable to stop in time, state police said.

Morgan, 45, was taken to Robert Wood Johnson Medical Center in New Brunswick, as confirmed by a hospital spokesperson.

James McNair, of Peekskill, N.Y., a passenger on Morgan’s bus, died in the crash, Sgt. 1st Class Greg Williams told the Associated Press. In addition to Morgan, two other passengers were in critical condition, and one was listed as fair, he said. Two occupants weren’t injured.

Police say one of the passengers from his bus died; three others were critically injured and one is listed as being in fair condition.

Morgan did a stand-up comedy gig in front of 1500 fans Friday night at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino in Delaware and presumably was on his way back to his home in Bergen County, N.J. His scheduled appearance at the Fillmore Charlotte in North Carolina on Saturday night has been canceled.

Accident investigation and cleanup kept that section of the road closed until 6:30 a.m.

Morgan joined Saturday Night Live in 1996 and was on the sketch-comedy program for seven years before leaving to star in The Tracy Morgan Show in 2003. That show lasted just one season. In 2006, Morgan found a long-running role in NBC’s hit show30 Rock, which was created by SNL co-star Tina Fey.

Morgan grew up fatherless, one of five siblings, in a blighted section of Brooklyn, where he helped raise and support the family.

Morgan and his fiancee, Megan Wolover, welcomed their first child in July.
