Tracy Morgan - Tracy Morgan transferred to rehab facility

Tracy Morgan has been transferred to a rehab facility.

The 45-year-old comedian - who sustained a number of injuries, including a broken femur, broken nose and broken ribs, when a Walmart truck crashed into the limo bus he was travelling in on the New Jersey Turnpike on June 7 - was released from hospital earlier this week, but still ''has a long way to go'' before he fully recovers from the accident, which also killed his friend, James McNair.

A spokesperson for the former '30 Rock' actor released a statement today (20.06.14), saying: ''Tracy has been transferred to an undisclosed rehab center, 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 [fiancée] Megan [Wollover] wanted to publicly express their deepest gratitude to everyone at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital for the unbelievable care and attention they provided him.''

Kevin Roper, the truck driver involved in the crash, has been charged with one count of death by auto and four counts of assault by auto in connection with the crash, but pleaded not guilty during a recent appearance at Middlesex County Superior Court in New Jersey.

Following the hearing, Mr. Roper, 35, was released on $50,000 bail.
