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.

"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.
