Tracy Morgan is still on the mend after landing in the hospital in critical condition following the six-vehicle car crash this past June. The 30 Rock alum, 46, who spent ten days in the ICU before being released to undergo physical therapy at home, was spotted out for the first time in New Jersey on Wednesday, Dec. 3, walking with the help of a walker.
Last month, Morgan's lawyer revealed that the comedian — who suffered a broken leg, broken femur, broken nose, and broken ribs following the accident which left fellow passenger James McNair dead — is still struggling with his recovery.
"Mr. Morgan is a fighter," Benedict Morelli told reporters outside a federal courthouse in Trenton, New Jersey, after attending a meeting with Walmart's attorneys. "He's fighting to get better. If there's a chance to be back to the Tracy Morgan he once was, he is going to try to do that. We just don't know. But is he doing much better? He's doing better," the star's lawyer said.
The accident occurred almost six months ago when a Walmart truck driver slammed into Morgan's limo on the New Jersey Turnpike. (Morgan was being chauffeured returning from a tour date in Delaware.) As previously reported, Morgan filed a lawsuit against Walmart claiming the company was "careless and negligent in the ownership and operation of its motor vehicle, which caused Mr. Morgan to suffer severe personal injuries." Walmart has since filed a countersuit, faulting Morgan for not wearing a seatbelt.
