Video From Police Arriving to Scene of Tracy Morgan Crash
Police have released new video of the June 7 crash that injured actor Tracy Morgan and killed his friend James McNair.
The dashcam video is from a police car as it arrives on the scene of the accident, which occurred on the New Jersey Turnpike. The video shows headlights from oncoming traffic and the smashed front of the tractor-trailer that struck Morgan’s limousine-van.
The video was obtained by WABC-TV New York and broadcast Tuesday night.
Morgan was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
He has since been released and is recovering from his injuries, which included a broken leg and broken ribs.
The truck driver, Kevin Roper, is has been charged with death by auto and assault by auto.
Roper, who was driving the truck for Wal-Mart, has pled not guilty to the charges.
Morgan's attorney, Benedict Morelli, has filed a lawsuit against Wal-Mart, claiming the retailer should have known the truck driver had driven 700 miles from his home in Georgia to work in Delaware.
