30 Rock Star Remains Critical But Is ‘More Responsive’


Tracy Morgan, star of Tina Fey’s 30 Rock, is ‘more responsive’ after being involved in a car crash which killed one member of his entourage.

A tractor-trailer rammed into Morgan’s chauffeured limousine bus on Saturday in New Jersey, leaving  a passenger, 62,  in the bus dead and two others seriously injured.

“While Tracy remains in critical condition, he has been more responsive today, which is an incredibly encouraging sign,” his rep Lewis Kay told ABC news.

“He had surgery earlier today on his leg,” Kay said. “We expect him to remain in the hospital for several weeks. His family is tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans.”

A Walmart truck driver from Georgia was charged with death by auto in connection to the crash, prosecutors said.

Middlesex County prosecutors said 35-year-old Kevin Roper also faces four counts of assault by auto. His bail was set at $US50,000 ($A54,100), and he was expected to turn himself in later on Saturday.

“This is a tragedy, and we are profoundly sorry that one of our trucks was involved,” Bill Simon, president and CEO of Walmart U.S., said in a statement, reports CNN.

“The facts are continuing to unfold. If it’s determined that our truck caused the accident, Walmart will take full responsibility.”
