Tracy Morgan - Tracy Morgan's Representative Dismisses Leg Amputation Rumours

A representative for Tracy Morgan has dismissed reports suggesting the comedian has had his leg amputated as a result of injuries sustained in an horrific car crash on Saturday (07Jun14).

The 30 Rock star was admitted to an intensive care hospital unit in New Jersey after the limo bus he was travelling in was rear-ended by a truck, causing the luxury vehicle to flip over.

He suffered a number of injuries, including a broken leg, a broken nose and several broken ribs, and he underwent surgery on his femur on Sunday (08Jun14).

His spokeswoman has since issued another statement to Tmz.com to clear up false speculation suggesting the operation was an amputation, insisting, "Rumors about his leg are completely fabricated."

She adds, "This recovery will be arduous and we hope that you can be patient during this difficult time."

Morgan was said to be "more responsive" following Sunday's surgery, however, he remains in a critical but stable condition.

Morgan's comedy writer friend James 'Jimmy MACk' MCNair was killed in the crash, while his assistant Jeff Millea and fellow funnyman Ardie Fuqua were also hospitalised in critical condition.

Truck driver Kevin Roper has since been charged with one count of death by auto and four of assault by auto. He is currently free on $50,000 (£31,250) bail and is due in court to face the charges on Wednesday (11Jun14).

Prosecutors claim Roper, a driver for U.S. superstore Wal-Mart, had not slept in more than 24 hours prior to the fatal accident.
