Tracy Morgan Is in "Critical But Stable Condition" Post-Crash, Leg Amputation Rumors False, Rep Says
Several days after a massive, six-car accident in Cranbury, NJ that killed comic James McNair and seriously injured others, Tracy Morgan "remains in critical but stable condition," his rep told Us Weekly in a statement late Monday, June 9. Convalescing at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, Morgan has fiancee Megan "at his side," adds the rep, who stresses that rumors about the beloved comic's health—including talk of an amputation—shouldn't be taken at face value.
"The concern for his well-being has been overwhelming, but Megan Wollover is respectfully asking that the media await official word through these channels before speculating (mostly inaccurately) on his condition," the rep continues. "Rumors about amputating his leg are completely fabricated. As we shared yesterday, Tracy had surgery on his broken leg."
As previously reported, the 30 Rock star, 45, suffered a broken leg, broken femur, broken nose and several broken ribs following a collision on the New Jersey Turnpike early Saturday, June 7. (Morgan was aboard a limo bus that collided with a tractor trailer and four other vehicles.)
"We are working closely with the incredible staff at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital to share information when it is available," the rep continues. "This recovery will be arduous and we hope that you can be patient during this difficult time."
Engaged since fall 2011, Morgan and Wollover, 27, are parents to daughter Maven, born last July.
