Tracy Morgan taken to rehab facility for long recovery
Tracy Morgan was transferred out of the hospital into a rehab facility where he's expected to remain a few weeks for a long recovery.
After being released from the hospital, Tracy Morgan was transferred to a rehab facility where he will stay for a few weeks.
According to Morgan's rep, the 30 Rock star has been slowly improving but will have to undergo a long-term recovery for his extensive accident injuries.
"Tracy has been transferred to an undisclosed rehab center, where he is expected to remain for the next few weeks. While he is continuing to show signs of improvement, he still has a long way to go," the rep said is a statement. "He and [fiancée] Megan wanted to publicly express their deepest gratitude to everyone at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital for the unbelievable care and attention they provided him."
Morgan was in critical condition following a serious six-car accident in New Jersey on June 7. He suffered a badly broken leg, a broken nose and broken ribs. His friend and fellow comedian James McNair was killed in the crash. While initially Morgan was in bad shape, several days after being in intensive care he was upgraded to fair condition.
Chronicling his progress on her Facebook page, Morgan's fiancée posted a message to fans, saying, "All your prayers helped- moving forward- stable & fair condition, but the journey continues... #faith."
Meanwhile, Kevin Roper, the truck driver who slammed into Morgan's limo, causing the fatal crash, was believed to be speeding prior to the accident. However, he has pleaded not guilty and his attorney released a statement expressing his sympathy for McNair's family and "heartfelt wishes for a full recovery of those who suffered injuries in the accident."
