Morgan's fiancee was distressed by the false rumors about his condition. The comedian is NOT losing his leg.
Tracy Morgan, who was seriously injured in a six-car pileup on Saturday morning, is still in “critical, but stable” condition, according to his publicist, via CNN. Meanwhile, after false rumors surfaced on Tuesday that the comedian would need to have his leg amputated, his fiancé, Megan Wollover, has spoken out with a plea for the speculation over Morgan’s condition to stop.
Megan Wollover has asked that her fiance's privacy be respected.
"The concern for his well-being has been overwhelming, but Megan is respectfully asking that the media await official word through these channels before speculating (mostly inaccurately) on his condition," Morgan's publicist, Lewis Kay, said in a statement. "Rumors about amputating his leg are completely fabricated."
The crash claimed one victim, comedian James McNair, who performed under the name Jimmy Mack. Three of the other five comedians traveling with Morgan on the bus are still in hospital. The only one to be released so far has been Harris Stanton, who recently talked to CNN about the accident. Recalling the moments after the crash, Stanton said: "When it stopped, Tracy was on top of me and I didn't see anyone else. I was just saying, 'help me, get me out of here."
Trial begins today against the truck driver involved in the crash.
Kevin Roper Walmart truck driver, who was charged in relation to the incident, is due in court today (Wednesday. June 11) on four counts of assault by auto and one count of death by auto.
