Comedian Tracy Morgan's weekend just got better as his rep has confirmed that he is finally released from the hospital.

According to TMZ, the 30 Rock star departed the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, New Jersey, approximately two weeks after he arrived to the facility in critical condition following a near-tragic New Jersey Turnpike car wreck.

While this is indeed good news for the television and movie star, his journey to recovery is not over as he has been transferred to an unspecified physical rehab center to continue his progress.

"Tracy has been transferred to an undisclosed rehab center, where he is expected to remain for the next few weeks," said spokesman Lewis Kay in a statement.

Following the June 7 accident, Morgan was airlifted to the hospital after suffering a broken leg and a variety of additional injuries after a tractor-trailer smashed into the Mercedes-Benz limo-van that was transporting the comedian and his four friends.

Kevin Roper, a Walmart truck driver, was later charged with vehicular homicide in the late-night crash.  A National Transportation Safety Board report found that Roper was doing 20 mph over the posted speed limit prior to the collision.
