TRACY MORGAN IS NEAR DEATH AFTER A TRUCK DRIVER SLEEPING AT THE WHEEL HIT HIS LIMO. JIMMY MACK HAS BEEN KILLED. THE DRIVER A 35 YEAR OLD MAN HAS BEEN CHARGED. James ‘Jimmy Mack’ McNair, 63, and Morgan were travelling with six other people in Morgan’s limousine bus about 1am Saturday (local time) when their vehicle was struck from behind by a Wal-Mart tractor trailer on the New Jersey Turnpike.
Police say the tractor trailer apparently failed to notice slow-moving traffic and did not stop in time to avoid colliding with the limo-bus, which was then propelled into several other vehicles before overturning. McNair did not survive the impact.
The driver, 35-year-old Kevin Roper, has since been charged by police with one count of death by auto and four counts of assault by auto.
hospital spokesman Peter Haigney listed Morgan’s assistant Jeffrey Millea and comedian Ardie Fuqua Jr. as being in critical condition, while comedian Harris Stanton was released after treatment. Two others in the party escaped injury.
