Actor Tracy Morgan Injured In NJ Turnpike Accident
Tracy Morgan, the former “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock” star, was injured in a six-vehicle accident on the New Jersey Turnpike early the morning of Saturday, June 7.
Seven people were hospitalized and one died after the accident, according to local authorities.
The accident occurred in Robbinsville, in Mercer County. Apparently, Morgan was on a “limo bus” and was returning from a performance in Delaware.
The limo bus become was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer and overturned. Several other vehicles, including an SUV and a second tractor-trailer, became involved in the accident as well.
A 63-year-old Peekskill, New York, man who apparently was a passenger on Morgan’s limo bus was killed. The other injured people were taken to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital.
Authorities have said they do not think alcohol was a factor in the crash.
