Tracey Morgan is well on his way to recovering from the June 8th car crash that saw him hospitalised for weeks. The comedian has reportedly returned to his home afterundergoing therapy at a rehabilitation center and will "continue his recovery at home with an aggressive outpatient program," his representative, Lewis Kay, said on Saturday.

"He asked me to pass along his sincerest gratitude to everyone who has helped him get to this point," Kay continued, adding "He would also appreciate some privacy during this crucial point in his recovery."

63-year-old comedian named James McNair, AKA Jimmy Mack, was killed in the crash that involved 2 tractor-trailers, 2 cars, an SUV and the limo carrying the performers. A Walmart truck struck the limo and the driver, Kevin Roper, has since pleaded not guilty to vehicular homicide.

However, Morgan is reportedly suing Walmart after it was found that the truck that rear-ended Morgan's limo was traveling 20 mph over the speed limit and its driver was almost at his drive time limit, according to a preliminary report by the National Transportation Safety Board, via CNN Wire.

Describing the crash as a "terrible tragedy," Walmart issued a statement wishing full recoveries to Morgan and two others injured with him, comedian Ardie Fuqua and Morgan's personal assistant Jeffrey Millea.

"Our thoughts continue to go out to them, their families and friends, as well as to the families and friends of everyone involved, including Mr. McNair who lost his life," Walmart said.
