One couldn’t help but smile after seeing photos of Tracy Morgan in recovery mode following a near-fatal car crash that claimed the life of a comedian friend. But his attorney says the former 30 Rock star’s having a difficult time getting back to 100 percent.
“He’s really having a tough time,” Benedict P. Morelli said to The Star-Ledger Newspaper.
Morelli’s words follow a six-car accident on the New Jersey Turnpike that left Morgan with a broken leg, nose, and ribs, and claimed the life of his friend James McNair, when their limo bus was hit by a Wal-Mart truck.
What Morrelli describes as an “incremental progress” may leave Morgan confined to a wheelchair for the coming months, according to the attorney.
Kevin Roper, 35, was driving the Wal-Mart vehicle that collided with Morgan’s limo bus; the Ga. native has since pleaded not guilty to vehicular homicide and four counts of assault by auto.
Morgan, however, is suing Wal-mart for negligence.
