Tracy Morgan, Two Members of Tour Still Critical
Tracy Morgan and two members of his entourage remain in critical condition as of Sunday morning, according to Robert Wood Johnson Hospital spokeswoman Zenaida Mendez. He and his friends and fellow comedians had left a show in Delaware when their tour limo was hit by a tractor trailer. James McNair–longtime friend and comedian who went by ‘Jimmy Mack’ for most comedy gigs–was killed in the accident.
Tracy Morgan’s publicist Lewis Kay kept the media apprised of the comedian and actor’s condition as of Sunday morning, too.
“Tracy remains in critical condition,” he wrote in an email statement.
Jeffrey Millea of Shelton, Conntecticut and Ardie Fuqua, Jr., who is also a comedian, were still listed in critical condition as of Sunday morning as well. Comedian Harris Stanton was treated and released from the hospital on Saturday with minor injuries.
Even though Tracy Morgan, Jeffrey Millea, and Ardie Fuqua are listed as critical, the media hasn’t yet received word of the extent of their injuries.
Twitter followers have remained faithful–sharing prayers and words of encouragement for Tracy Morgan and his family as well as for the family of James McNair. Maria Menounos, Nicki Minaj, Henry Winkler, and Kevin Nealon shared the following posts.

Fans awaiting word on Tracy Morgan’s condition are likely checking internet posts and TV reports frequently in hopes of learning some good news. Meanwhile the family of James McNair is preparing to say their goodbyes to a loved one. The driver of the tractor trailer that hit the limo has been charged and is out of jail on bail. He likely is suffering, too. He is, after all, responsible for taking a life.
