Tracy Morgan Still Wheelchair Bound … Walking is Now Questionable

TRACY MORGAN

Tracy Morgan was seen Wednesday afternoon being wheeled into a New York City hospital … and TMZ has learned he might not be ditching the chair anytime soon.

Morgan is still recovering from the horrific car crash back in June when a Walmart truck collided with his van. Sources close to Tracy tell TMZ … Morgan’s injuries stemming from that crash may prevent him from ever walking again without some kind of assistance.

Morgan has been feuding publicly with Walmart after it claimed in legal docs his injuries were due in part to the fact he wasn’t wearing his seat belt.

Morgan responded by saying, “My friends and I were doing nothing wrong.”

Tracy Morgan’s professional fate is in limbo, with new reports indicating that he suffered a crippling brain injury following the crash he survived this summer.

Benedict Morelli, Morgan’s lawyer, told Page Six that the “jury is out” on whether the comedian will be able to perform again. He is currently in rehab for speech, cognitive, vocational and physical functionalities. Morelli said doctors don’t yet know whether the wheelchair-bound Morgan, 45, will return to his previous self.

“These people are despicable,” Morelli said of Walmart executives, who on Monday said Morgan and the three friends with him were partly to blame in the crash for not wearing seat belts. “They knew that they changed these people’s lives forever and killed somebody. They’re good blame shifters. I guess that’s how they make $783 billion a year, shifting the blame.”

Morgan rebuked Walmart’s claims in a statement released Tuesday. “I can’t believe Walmart is blaming me for an accident that they caused,” the “30 Rock” star wrote, referring to the Walmart tractor-trailer that smashed into the back of Morgan’s limo in June. “My friends and I were doing nothing wrong. I want to thank my fans for sticking with me during this difficult time. I love you all. I’m fighting hard every day to get back.”

“GO AWAY” Tracy Morgan’s Estranged Mom Turned Away At Hospital

 

Tracy Morgan’s estranged mom says she was turned away at the hospital when she first went to visit her critically injured son.

Alicia Warden — who has had a well-publicized, strained relationship with Morgan — says no one called her about her son, she heard about it on TV

She says she went to visit Tracy in the hospital on Saturday, but was turned away by hospital security and Tracy’s fiancee, Megan Wollover…seen below. Warden believes Tracy’s fiancee has a thing against her.

Warden says she returned the next day and she was let in but Tracy was unconscious and she was only allowed to stay for 5 minutes — never alone with him. She says his friends and a pastor were in the room.

Warden says, “All I wanted was for our family to be alone with him. I wanted to pray over him and couldn’t do that because so many people were in the room.”

Morgan said in a 2012 interview, he hadn’t seen her in 11 years.

Tracy Morgan seriously hurt in car crash

Steve Patterson reports actor and comedian Tracy Morgan is hospitalized following a six vehicle accident along the New Jersey Turnpike.

 

 

 

 

 

Comedian Tracy Morgan, best known for his roles on”Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock,” was critically injured when his limo bus overturned in a multi-vehicle crash in New Jersey early on Saturday morning, police said.

Morgan, 45, was taken by helicopter to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Center in New Brunswick, New Jersey, in critical condition and was in intensive care, said Gregory Williams, a state police spokesman.

Another passenger on the limo bus was killed in the accident on the New Jersey Turnpike involving the bus, two tractor-trailers, a sports utility vehicle and two other vehicles. The accident occurred at around 1 a.m. on Saturday morning near Cranberry Township, Williams said.

“The limo bus is the only vehicle that overturned,” Williams told CNN. “Looks like one of the tractor-trailers may have rear-ended that limo bus, but that’s preliminary at this time.”

He said he did not believe alcohol played a role in the accident, but said that is part of the investigation.

Six other people besides Morgan were injured, Williams said.

‘SNL’ and ’30 Rock’

Morgan was on the road for his “Turn it Funny” stand-up comedy tour. He was booked to perform at a casino in Dover, Delaware, on Friday night and had been due to appear on Saturday in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The comedian, a native of New York City, spent seven years on “Saturday Night Live” before leaving the cast in 2003. He went on to star in the sitcom “30 Rock” for seven seasons, playing an unhinged, reckless comedian called Tracy Jordan in a network television satire that caricatured his SNL days.

“30 Rock” also skewered Morgan’s sometimes inflammatory stand-up routine – on more than one occasion he has publicly apologized for making jokes about gay and disabled people.

Morgan, a diabetic, had a kidney transplant in 2010.

Peter Haigney, a spokesman at the hospital where Morgan was being treated, said the hospital was treating a total of four people from the accident, three of them in critical condition.

He gave no other details and referred queries about Morgan to the actor’s publicist, Lewis Kay. Kay said he would release a statement later on Saturday.

Police said they were still investigating the crash, and whether alcohol was involved.

As news of the accident broke early Saturday morning, fellow celebrities and friends took to Twitter to express shock and send their thoughts out toMorgan.

“€œSending prayers and love to @RealTracyMorgan & all injured in the NJ accident. I’m pulling for you brother,” wrote “€œPsych”€ actor Dulé Hill.

Jay Mohr, like Morgan a “€œSaturday Night Live” alum, noted the severity of the accident. “I’m from NJ. For the Turnpike to be closed for hours is incredibly, frighteningly rare,”€ he tweeted. “€œI love you @RealTracyMorgan. No more comics, God.”

Jemele Hill, co-host of ESPN’s “Numbers Never Lie,” noted that she had just seen Morgan.

“Saying a prayer for @RealTracyMorgan. He was a guest on @ESPN_Numbers a few weeks ago. Very sweet and talented person,” she wrote.
