Morgan, 45, was travelling in a limo bus when the crash happened. Another passenger, comedian James McNair, was killed. Their vehicle was struck by a Walmart truck, whose driver has since been charged with death by auto, as well as four counts of assault by auto. Police said Kevin Roper, 35, apparently failed to slow for traffic and swerved at the last minute to avoid the crash. Instead, his truck hit the back of the limo bus.
The driver of Morgan's vehicle, Tyrone Gale, said he could hear passengers in distress after his vehicle flipped over.
"I climbed around and heard Tracy screaming for help," he told ABC News.
"I climbed up on the body of the limo bus . but I couldn't reach them."
Morgan was a series regular on Saturday Night Live for seven years though he's probably best known for 30 Rock.
Following the crash, Morgan's 30 Rock co-star Alec Baldwin tweeted, "Let's hope for a full and speedy recovery for Tracy and the others involved in that crash."
Conan O'Brien said: "Thinking about Tracy Morgan and his family today. Hoping for a fast recovery for this sweet and uniquely funny man."
Movie star Kevin Hart tweeted, "I ask all of you to throw a special prayer up to the big fella for my friend Tracy Morgan.He's been on my mind heavy."
Morgan's spokesperson Lewis Kay said his family was "tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans."
