Tracy Morgan - Tracy Morgan Moved To Rehab Facility

Actor Tracy Morgan has been moved to a rehabilitation facility following a New Jersey traffic pile-up that put him in the hospital and claimed the life of his comedian pal James 'jimmy Mack' Mcnair.

Kevin Roper, a driver for U.S. superstore Walmart, stands accused of falling asleep behind the wheel of his vehicle after ploughing into the back of a limo bus carrying Morgan and his companions early on 7 June (14).

The impact of the collision killed MCNair and left Morgan and two others with serious injuries.

Earlier this week (begs16Jun14), the 30 Rock star's condition was upgraded to fair from critical and on Friday (20Jun14), he was transferred to an undisclosed location to continue his treatment.

His representative tells E! News, "Tracy has been transferred to an undisclosed rehab centre, where he is expected to remain for the next few weeks. While he is continuing to show signs of improvement, he still has a long way to go.

"He and (fiancee) Megan wanted to publicly express their deepest gratitude to everyone at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital for the unbelievable care and attention they provided him."

Meanwhile, Roper has pleaded not guilty to charges of vehicular homicide and assault by auto and a preliminary report released by officials from the National Transportation Safety Board (Ntsb) suggests he was speeding before the accident. Prosecutors also allege the driver had not slept for 24 hours prior to the fatal incident.

He faces up to 10 years behind bars if authorities can prove he ignored sleep guidelines for a trucker.
