According to Morgan’s spokesman, Lewis Kay, the “30 Rock” and “Saturday Night Live” actor had undergone surgery for a broken leg but seemed “more responsive” afterward. Morgan also suffered a broken nose and several broken ribs in the accident, and doctors expect him to remain hospitalized for several weeks. Morgan’s family, meanwhile, is “tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans.”
The driver of the Wal-Mart truck that struck Morgan’s limo bus, Kevin Roper, has been charged with death by auto and with assault by auto. James McNair, a comedian and friend of Morgan’s, was killed in the crash, while two others — Jeffrey Millea and Ardie Fuqua Jr. — remain in critical condition as well. The accident occurred early on Saturday (June 7) morning.
