TRENTON, N.J. — An attorney for Tracy Morgan says the former “Saturday Night Live” actor is having a tough time recovering from injuries suffered in a June accident on the New Jersey Turnpike that left a fellow comedian dead.
Attorney Benedict Morelli tells The Star-Ledger newspaper that Morgan relies on a wheelchair and it may be months before he can fully walk again.
Morelli said Morgan appears to be making progress, but it will be a month before he is assessed “cognitively.”
Morgan broke his leg, nose and several ribs in a six-car accident involving his limo bus, and comedian James McNair was killed.
The bus was struck by a Wal-Mart truck.
