Comedian Tracy Morgan is fighting for his life today after a six-car pileup on the New Jersey turnpike. Morgan and several others were traveling in a limo bus when an 18-wheeler struck their vehicle, killing one and injuring several others.

According to reports, the tragic accident was caused by a drowsy truck driver who didn’t notice traffic has slowed down.

“Driver failed to observe slow-moving traffic ahead,” New Jersey State Police Sgt. First Class Gregory Williams said. “He observed at the last-minute — just prior to impact — the limo bus carrying Morgan and his party.”

Morgan’s writing partner and fellow comedian James McNair was killed in the crash, and his assistant, Jeff Millea, is also in critical condition.

The 30 Rock star appeared Friday night at the Dover Downs Hotel and Casino in Dover, Delaware, and was scheduled to perform in North Carolina tonight.

Morgan is the father of four children, including an infant daughter his fiancé Megan Wollover gave birth to last July.

    I understand that the trucker arrested works for Wal-Mart and reportedly had not slept for more than 24 hours. It is pitiful that innocent people are killed or injured because other people have work under inhuman pressure to make ends meet.

      I knew that something was up as soon at Walmart issued an apology. Walmart NEVER apologizes for ANYTHING. They never admit wrongdoing, even when their own employees are harmed.

      I had a feeling that he was overworked, and there is probably documentation that he expressed that he was sleepy or requested another shift.
