Actor Tracy Morgan is hospitalized in critical condition after being involved in a serious crash on the New Jersey Turnpike early this morning. Gregory Williams with New Jersey State Police says rescue crews rushed to the scene.
The comedian's limo bus collided with a pair of tractor trailers early this morning just north of Trenton. One person died and Morgan and three others were flown to the hospital in critical condition. Morgan was on his way home from a stand-up comic performance at a Delaware casino at the time of the crash.
Morgan is being treated at Robert Wood Johnson Medical Center in New Brunswick.
A dozing truck driver could be to blame for the deadly accident. ABC News reports the driver of the 18-wheeler that rear-ended Morgan's limousine bus didn't see traffic slowing on the New Jersey Turnpike until it was too late.
A rep for Morgan released the following statement Saturday:
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. 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.
Morgan is one of the stars on NBC's popular show "30 Rock". He performed at a casino in Dover, Delaware last night. It's believed he was on his way home to Bergen, New Jersey at the time of the accident.
