American actor and comedian Tracy Jamal Morgan remains in critical but stable condition after being involved in a serious car accident on Saturday morning.
The limo that Morgan was traveling in was struck by a tractor-trailer on the New Jersey Turnpike. Three other passengers accompanied Morgan, one of them being comedian James “ Jimmy Mack” McNair, who did not survive the wreck.
Also riding in the limo were comedians Ardie Fuqua and Harris Stanton, who were both injured in the wreck.
According to Morgan’s publicist, Morgan is in critical but stable condition. He suffered broken ribs, a broken nose, a broken leg, and a broken femur, amongst several other injuries.
Morgan is best known for his recurring role as a cast member on Saturday Night Live. He has been in the industry of stand-up, television, and film since 1992. He made his screen debut as Hustle Man on the hit television show Martin.
He is expected to remain hospitalized for several weeks. According to Lewis Kay, Morgan’s spokesman, Morgan has been a bit more responsive after having the necessary surgeries for his broken leg.
Morgan’s family expressed their appreciation for the heavy concern and well wishes in regards to his well-being, and, according to Kay, they have asked for privacy and patience during Morgan’s recovery.
“The concern for his well-being has been overwhelming, but (Morgan’s fiancée) Megan is respectfully asking that the media await official word through these channels before speculating (mostly inaccurately) on his condition,” Kay said. “This recovery will be arduous and we hope that you can be patient during this difficult time.” (FOX News)
