Entertainment tracy 300x219 Tracy Morgan Struggling After Car Crash

Tracy Morgan

Tracy Morgan’s attorney said the comedian is “still struggling” with his health two months after breaking several bones in a deadly New Jersey highway crash that has renewed public attention to safety in the U.S. trucking industry.

“He’s still struggling, but he’s a fighter,” attorney Benedict Morelli told NBC’s “Today” show.

Morgan, best known for his roles on TV comedies “30 Rock” and “SaturdayNight Live,” broke a leg, several ribs and his nose in June when a Wal-Mart Stores Inc tractor-trailer slammed into a limo bus Morgan and his entourage were riding in.

Last month, Morgan left a rehabilitation facility to recover at home and was photographed walking gingerly with the help of a walker.

Passenger James McNair, 62, a comedian known by his stage name Jimmy Mack, died in the crash near Cranbury, New Jersey.

The driver of the truck, 35-year-old Kevin Roper, has pleaded not guilty to charges of vehicular homicide and assault by auto.

Morgan, 45, has filed a negligence lawsuit against Wal-Mart, alleging it knew or should have known that Roper had been awake for more than 24 hours before the crash and was not in compliance with U.S. trucking regulations.
