UPDATE #2: The cause of the crash has been determined to be the fault of a dozing truck driver. According to ABC News, the driver failed to brake, and rear-ended the limo carrying Morgan and other passengers. 

One passenger has been confirmed to have passed away as a result of the crash: He has been identified as comedian James McNair.

UPDATE #3: The truck driver who is said to be at fault for the crash has been arrested in connection with the crash, which left Morgan injured and McNair dead. He has been charged with one count of death by auto and four counts of assault.

It is under investigation whether or not alcohol was involved in the crash, but at this time, sources in connection with the accident do not believe that was the case.
