Tracy Morgan ‘struggling’ to heal


Tracy Morgan is “struggling” to heal from the injuries he sustained in a car crash. The 45-year-old 30 Rock star was involved in a six-car accident that took the life of comic James McNair in June. Tracy suffered severe trauma in the tragedy and his lawyer Benedict P. Morelli confirms to People magazine the comedian is finding the rehabilitation process difficult right now.

'He's making incremental progress'

“[He’s] struggling. He's really having a tough time," the attorney revealed.

In addition to brain injuries, Tracy broke his leg, femur, nose and busted some ribs. He was released from a rehab facility in July after spending time at the hospital in critical condition.

The star is now receiving recovery treatment at his New Jersey home, but Tracy may not be able to walk fully for months, so he needs the aid of a wheelchair and walker to get around.

“He's making incremental progress," Benedict said. "But they'll have to wait another month before they assess him cognitively."

Tracy was riding in a limousine in New Jersey when his vehicle collided with a tractor trailer on a turnpike during the early hours of June 7.

At the time of the tragedy he was travelling with four others in the back of the automobile.

Two other passengers in the front of the vehicle were unhurt.

Last month, Tracy filed suit against Walmart, claiming the retailer was negligent because its driver, Kevin Roper, hadn’t slept in 24 hours prior to the crash.

That driver pleaded not guilty to charges of vehicular homicide and assault by auto. He denies having fallen asleep at the wheel.

The case continues.
