Tracy Morgan is feeling strong a month following deadly car crash. The American actor and comedian known for his eight seasons as a cast member on Saturday Night Live and for his role as Tracy Jordan on the TV series 30 Rock fled with just injuries in the multi-vehicle car crash on the New Jersey turnpike. Morgan now opens up how is condition is, as he told photographers
he’s doing okay and feeling “strong.”
On June 7, a man driving a Wal-mart truck slammed into a vehicle that Morgan was traveling in, killing his friend and mentor James “Jimmy Mack” McNair. Morgan, 45, broke his nose, ribs and leg. The truck driver, Kevin Roper, reportedly fell asleep at the wheel.
It was just last week when he had been released from a rehabilitation center, returning to his New Jersey home to Finnish off his recovery.
He was photographed on Monday using a walker and getting into a car outside of his house.
He told photographers:
“I’m OK. I feel strong. Love you. Thank you very much. I appreciate it.”
Meanwhile, Morgan is suing Wal-Mart for having Roper on duty for such a lengthy period of time. Roper claimed to have been awake for over 24 hours before the crash, and an investigation revealed he was driving around 20 miles per hour over the speed limit when he hit Morgan’s limousine.
