Actor and comedian Tracy Morgan was in critical condition Saturday after a limo bus he was riding in crashed on the New Jersey Turnpike, according to multiple reports. At least one person was killed, and two other passengers were also in critical condition.
The limo bus, which was carrying Morgan and six others, overturned at around 1 a.m. Saturday morning near Cranbury Township, Sgt. First Class Greg Williams of the New Jersey State Police told The Associated Press. The accident involved six vehicles, including two tractor trailers and an SUV.
One of the tractor trailers crashed into the limo bus, state police told The New York Times. The driver of the truck didn’t notice that traffic ahead of him had slowed until it was too late, police told ABC News. The truck hit the limo bus from behind, sending it crashing into other vehicles before tipping over on its side, ABC reported. No charges had yet been filed as of early afternoon.
James McNair, one of Morgan’s comedy writers who was also riding in the limo bus, was killed. He was 62.
Comedian Ardie Fuqua Jr. and Morgan’s assistant, Jeffrey Millea, were both in critical condition, a hospital spokesperson told the AP.
