Comedian Tracy Morgan’s health was upgraded to fair condition on Monday as he continued to show signs of improvement. The 45-year-old former “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock” star suffered broken ribs and a broken leg in the June 7 crash on the New Jersey Turnpike. The crash killed fellow comedian James McNair and seriously injured two other people. Prosecutors say Wal-Mart driver Kevin Roper’s truck hit Morgan’s limo.
His personality is certainly starting to come back.

A criminal complaint alleges Roper hadn’t slept for more than 24 hours before the accident when he swerved to avoid slowed traffic on the turnpike and plowed into Morgan’s limo. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. has not explained what Roper’s driving route was. It has said it believes he was in compliance with federal safety regulations.
