Comedian, “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock” star Tracy Morgan has been injured in a serious car crash earlier this morning. He was leaving a standup gig in Delaware on Friday night and was on his way home when the accident occurred. One person has been killed in the six car accident and Tracy’s limo was overturned as a result of the collision.
Morgan was riding in a limo bus on the NJ Turnpike after a concert … when it was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer — at least that’s the way it now appears. Tracy’s limo overturned in the wreck.
One person in the limo was killed, and three others are in critical condition, including the former star of “SNL” and “30 Rock.”
Police say 2 tractor-trailers, 2 cars, an SUV and the limo bus were involved in the chain collision — and, at this point, they do not believe alcohol was a factor in the crash.
