NEW JERSEY (KRON) — New video of the deadly crash involving comedian Tracy Morgan shows motorists helping victims moments before EMTs arrived on the scene.
The accident left several people injured. TMZ reported that Morgan and another passenger were airlifted to a nearby hospital. Another passenger in the limo was killed in the crash.
The video, which was obtained by TMZ, shows a group of people pulling one person out of the limo. The man who shot the video told TMZ that “the person pulled from the limo is Tracy Morgan — he laid on the concrete waiting for paramedics.”
The 45-year-old Morgan, a former “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock” cast member, remained in critical condition Monday. Morgan’s spokesman, Lewis Kay, said he was “more responsive” Sunday after having surgery for a broken leg.
The truck driver from Georgia accused of triggering the highway crashed into Morgan’s limo bus hadn’t slept for more than 24 hours before the accident, authorities said Monday.
Authorities said the 35-year-old Roper apparently failed to slow for traffic ahead early Saturday in Cranbury Township and swerved at the last minute to avoid a crash. Instead, his big rig smashed into the back of Morgan’s chauffeured Mercedes limo bus, killing comedian James “Jimmy Mack” McNair, authorities said.
