Tracy Morgan Is in Critical Condition After His Limo Bus Got Hit by a Walmart Truck
TRACY MORGAN is in intensive care, after his limo bus was hit by a Walmart truck on the New Jersey Turnpike at about 1:00 A.M. Saturday morning. He had performed at a casino in Delaware earlier that night.
The accident also involved a second tractor-trailer, an SUV and two cars. One person was killed, and Tracy is one of four people who were badly hurt.
JAMES MCNAIR is the victim who was killed in the crash. He was in Tracy's vehicle, and was his longtime friend and comedy writer. He was 62 . . . and also performed under the name "Uncle Jimmy Mack".
Yesterday, Tracy's rep said that Tracy was still in critical condition . . . but added that he was, quote, "more responsive today." He also said Tracy had a number of injuries including a broken leg, a broken femur, and several broken ribs.
He's expected to be hospitalized for several weeks.
Tracy's ex-wife Sabina Morgan told the "New York Daily News", quote, "He's not in good shape. I'm traumatized . . . It's like I'm in a nightmare."
Comedian Ardie Fuqua is also in critical condition, as is Tracy's assistant Jeffrey Millea. Another comedian, Harris Stanton, was treated and released.
Some sources say the driver of the Walmart semi fell asleep at the wheel . . . didn't see traffic slowing in front of him until it was too late . . . and plowed into several vehicles.
The man was charged with one count of death by auto, and four counts of assault by auto. He was released after posting $50,000 bail.
The limo's driver was not seriously hurt. He told ABC News, quote, "I climbed around and heard Tracy screaming for help. I climbed up on the body of the limo bus . . . but I couldn't reach them."
Someone Broke Into Sandra Bullock's House While She Was Home
On Saturday night, SANDRA BULLOCK picked up the Decade of Hotness award at the Spike TV "Guys' Choice Awards". Then she went home and her weekend got a little scary.
A 39-year-old man entered Sandra's house early Sunday morning. As far as we know, she didn't confront the guy. Police were called . . . they arrived at the house at about 6:30 A.M. and arrested him.
There's no word what he was doing there, but my guess is he was NOT attempting to steal any "Speed 2" memorabilia.
