The other two passengers who were injured in the accident are also improving. Comedians Jeffrey Millea and Ardie Fuqua Jr. were injured in the accident and remain hospitalised. A third passenger, Harris Stanton, was also involved but was released from hospital on Saturday. Millea's wife spoke to the Huffington Post and said her husband "has also shown much improvement over the past few days." 

The driver of the truck, a Georgia man named Kevin Roper, was arrested shortly after the crash. Roper has been charged with numerous offences including one count of death by auto and four counts of assault by auto. 35-year-old Roper appeared in court on Wednesday (11th June) and pleaded not guilty to all counts, according to NBC. He was released from custody on the same after posting $50 000 bail.
