Tracy Morgan Shows Signs of Improvement Following Car Crash

The 30 Rock star wants to return to work soon.

Published February 27, 2015

Eight months have passed since Tracy Morgan was involved in a near fatal car crash that left him critically injured, but the 30 Rock star has since made steady progress towards making a full recovery and is eager to get back to work.


Morgan was seen heading into a New Jersey rehab facility on Wednesday, February 25, and showed promising signs of progress. According to Us Magazine, the actor/comedian was using a cane for support after exiting his car. While he waited for his fiancée and daughter, he rested on a bench outside of the building.

With eight months passing since Morgan has been active in both comedy and film, the funny man has been yearning to return to the spotlight: "If Tracy could be out, acting and doing what he loves, he would be — 100 percent," a source told Us. "But sadly, he just can't yet."

Morgan broke his leg, femur, nose, ribs, and also suffered from a scarring brain injury after his limo bus overturned at the New Jersey Turnpike last June. A Walmart truck driver was pegged as the main suspect of the crash. Though Morgan's life was spared, his friend James McNair unfortunately passed away.

The comedian has since filed a lawsuit against Walmart for "careless and negligent ownership and operation of its motor vehicle." is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
