Comedian Tracy Morgan improving after crash, out of critical condition

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.
