Famous comedian Tracy Morgan is recovering from a car crash in which his vehicle went into collision with a truck on the New Jersey Turnpike last week. Tracy got seriously injured after the car accident early Saturday (June 7) morning in Cranbury, NJ.

The 63-year-old comedian James McNair, known as "Uncle Jimmy Mack," died on the spot. Three other persons also got injured due to this accident. 43-year-old stand-up comedian Ardie Fuqua, Morgan's assistant Jeff Millea, and comic actor Harris Stanton are the other people affected by the accident.

Tracy's condition was also serious. As a result of this car crash, Tracy Morgan's leg, femur, nose and ribs were broken.

But now his rep says that Tracy Morgan's condition is still critical but stable. And the 45-year-old comedian, famous for his role as Tracy Jordan on the TV series 30 Rock, is doing better as well as showing signs of improvement.

"Today was a better day," Morgan's rep told Us Weekly in a statement. "While Tracy remains in critical, but stable, condition, he continues to show signs of improvement. His medical team remains optimistic that his recovery is progressing."

Tracy is not alone in the hospital. His fiancee Megan Wollover is continuously with him. In fact, she "remains by his side and is relaying the countless good wishes and prayers that his family, friends and fans have been sending their way," says Morgan's rep.

Morgan's assistant Jeff Millea's wife also announced that his husband is recovering and has shown signs of improvement. "In addition, Jeff's wife asked us to pass along that Jeff has also shown much improvement over the past few days," Morgan's rep added. "She is very thankful for the love and support she and their family continue to receive."

The Walmart truck driver that collided with Morgan and others limo bus pleaded not guilty in the court on Wednesday. His name is Kevin Roper. He was charged with vehicular homicide and assault by auto. He was released on bail of $50,000.
