Tracy Morgan has left the hospital. The American 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 is also intending on suing Walmart for the deadly crash which sent him there with injuries on June 8th, 2014. Because of this he had been hospitalized for weeks.
The comedian has reportedly returned to his home after under going therapy at a rehabilitation center and will “continue his recovery at home with an aggressive outpatient program,” his representative, Lewis Kay, said on Saturday.
“He asked me to pass along his sincerest gratitude to everyone who has helped him get to this point,” Kay continued, adding “He would also appreciate some privacy during this crucial point in his recovery.”
James McNair, AKA Jimmy Mack, sixty three and a comedian’s life had been taken in the crash, which involved two tractor-trailers, two cars, an SUV and the limo carrying the performers. Then what happened is the drive of a truck struck the limo and the driver, Kevin Roper, has since pleaded not guilty to vehicular homicide.
However, Morgan is reportedly suing Walmart after it was found that the truck that rear-ended Morgan’s limo was traveling 20 mph over the speed limit and its driver was almost at his drive time limit, according to a preliminary report by the National Transportation Safety Board, via CNN Wire.
“Our thoughts continue to go out to them, their families and friends, as well as to the families and friends of everyone involved, including Mr. McNair who lost his life,” Walmart said.
