    There is a video/news story of the damaged bus (not at the scene of the accident) on the source site (Chicago Tribune), link at the bottom of the article.

    This picture of the bus in a protected parking lot, not at the scene of the accident.



    Comedian Tracy Morgan, best known for his roles on"Saturday Night Live" and "30 Rock," was critically injured when his limo bus overturned in a multi-vehicle crash in New Jersey early on Saturday morning, police said.

    Morgan, 45, was taken by helicopter to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Center in New Brunswick, New Jersey, in critical condition and was in intensive care, said Gregory Williams, a state police spokesman.

    Another passenger on the limo bus was killed in the accident on the New Jersey Turnpike involving the bus, two tractor-trailers, a sports utility vehicle and two other vehicles. The accident occurred at around 1 a.m. on Saturday morning near Cranberry Township, Williams said. Peter Haigney, a spokesman at the hospital where Morgan is being treated, said the hospital was treating a total of four people from the accident, three of them in critical condition.

    “The limo bus is the only vehicle that overturned,” Williams told CNN. “Looks like one of the tractor-trailers may have rear-ended that limo bus, but that's preliminary at this time.”

    He said he did not believe alcohol played a role in the accident, but said that is part of the investigation.
    Six other people besides Morgan were injured, Williams said.


    Morgan's publicist, Lewis Kay, released a statement that reads, "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."
    'SNL' and '30 Rock'

    Morgan was on the road for his "Turn it Funny" stand-up comedy tour. He was booked to perform at a casino in Dover, Delaware, on Friday night and had been due to appear on Saturday in Charlotte, North Carolina.

    The comedian, a native of New York City, spent seven years on "Saturday Night Live" before leaving the cast in 2003. He went on to star in the sitcom "30 Rock" for seven seasons, playing an unhinged, reckless comedian called Tracy Jordan in a network television satire that caricatured his SNL days.

    "30 Rock" also skewered Morgan's sometimes inflammatory stand-up routine - on more than one occasion he has publicly apologized for making jokes about gay and disabled people.

    Morgan, a diabetic, had a kidney transplant in 2010. He has a 1-year-old son with fiancee Megan Wollover and has three grown children from a previous relationship.

    Tracy Morgan Crash -- Truck Driver Charged With Death By Auto | TMZ.com


    Tracy Morgan Crash
    Truck Driver Charged With Death By Auto

    6/7/2014 1:53 PM PDT
    BY TMZ STAFF


    EXCLUSIVE


    The guy driving the Walmart truck that crashed into Tracy Morgan's limo bus Saturday morning has been charged with death by auto ... TMZ has learned.

    The Middlesex County Prosecutors Office says 35-year old Kevin Roper was charged with 1 count of death by auto and 4 counts of assault by auto.

    Roper's bail has been set at $50k ... and prosecutors expect him to surrender.

    As we previously reported, Morgan was riding in a limo bus on the NJ Turnpike on his way home from a gig last night ... when it was rear-ended by an 18-wheeler and overturned.

    Tracy and another passenger were airlifted to a nearby hospital where they remain in critical condition. Another passenger, James McNair, was pronounced dead at the scene.

    According to reports ... Morgan's opening act Ardie Fuqua -- who posted a photo of Tracy roughly 30 minutes before the accident -- is also in critical condition.

    Prosecutors say the cause of the 6-vehicle wreck is still under investigation.

    My dad drove by this the other night. It was fucking mayhem. He started telling me all about it this morning on the phone, not realizing who was involved. He's a big 30 Rock fan and it totally freaked him out when I told him whose limo it was. I really hope he pulls through. My dad said when he drove past he didn't think anyone survived at all.

    My Husband is a CDL driver and says this is one of his biggest fears, that there will be an accident beyond his control and someone dies.

    ^^I understand his fears. I insure many clients with driving exposures and that is why we stress the need for regulation in hours, hiring practices, etc. If it truly was an accident and not negligence, I wonder why the driver has been charged. I wonder if some facts will come out with an explanation of the charges. (maybe they have, and I just have not come across them yet)

    Can't say I'm even a fan (believe it or not, never saw 30 Rock), but this makes me really sad. I hope that everyone who is injured recovers quickly.

    Tracy Morgan was involved in a six-vehicle car accident on Saturday, June 7, which left the comedian in critical condition, and one person dead. The 30 Rock alum's rep updated Us Weekly on his condition on Sunday, June 8.

    "While Tracy remains in critical condition, he has been more responsive today, which is an incredibly encouraging sign," Morgan's rep told Us. "He sustained a number of injuries including a broken leg, a broken femur, a broken nose and several broken ribs. He had surgery earlier today on his leg. We expect him to remain in the hospital for several weeks. His family is tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans."

    First off, I have to say sorry for bumping this thread without having any new info. I hate that! However someone told me he died, and I knew I would have read it here first so said it can't be true. I googled (it's sometimes my friend) and found nothing but a hoax. Correct?

    As most death hoaxes go, people seemed to see tweets about Tracy’s apparent death and tweeted a reaction themselves, without first checking to find out if the tweet was actually true.
    Tracy Morgan Death Hoax Has A Backlash

    Of course it’s not. A full day after the June 7 accident, Tracy’s rep released a statement:
    While Tracy remains in critical condition, he has been more responsive today, which is an incredibly encouraging sign. He sustained a number of injuries including a broken leg, a broken femur, a broken nose and several broken ribs. He had surgery earlier today on his leg. We expect him to remain in the hospital for several weeks. His family is tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans.
    Then on June 10, the rep stated, “There has been no change in Tracy’s condition today. He remains in critical but stable condition.”
    It’s just so unfortunate that hoaxes like this get started and gain so much momentum, as if people deep down want the worst to be true so they can tweet about it. Tracy’s family has enough to worry about aside from seeing millions of people spread rumors about his death. Thankfully, this time there appeared to be a major backlash to this hoax, as just as many Twitter users took to the site to debunk the hoax and tell others to stop tweeting about it.

    I didn't realize that this was such a bad wreck until I saw it on the news the other night. I just thought he had minor injuries, no big deal. I didn't know he was so badly hurt & that someone was killed, & all the other stuff going on...
    Anyway, so the news is reporting the story (and this was the first time I realized how serious it was & what had happened) & then right after the story, there was a Wal-Mart commercial. Um, really? Talk about bad ad placement!!
