The former “Saturday Night Live” cast member was riding in a limo bus when the accident occurred in Mercer County, said Sgt. Gregory William of New Jersey State Police.
In addition to the bus, the wreck involved two tractor-trailers and an SUV, he said. He did not provide specifics on what happened.
One person was killed and four others hospitalized with injuries, authorities said.
Peter Haigney, a spokesman for the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, said four patients are getting treated at the hospital.
Three are in critical condition while one is in fair condition, he said.
Haigney declined to say whether Morgan was among the patients, but state police confirmed his identity to CNN.
We recently had the chance to interview Morgan and he couldn’t have been lovelier. Our thoughts and prayers are with him. We’ll update with more information as it comes available.
UPDATE: his reps released this statement a short time ago.
“Tracy remains in critical condition at Robert Wood Johnson Hospital. He sustained these injuries in an accident that occurred early this morning as one of several passengers in a chauffeured SUV returning from a tour date in Delaware. His family is now with him and he is receiving excellent care. We don’t anticipate much of a change in his condition today but will provide a further update once more information becomes available.”
