There's finally a bit of good news when it comes to Tracy Morgan's condition following this past weekend's devastating crash that left Morgan in critical condition and comedian James McNair dead: According to Morgan's publicist, the actor is doing better.
“Today was a better day,” his spokesman, Lewis Kay, said in an emailed statement. “While Tracy remains in critical, but stable, condition, he continues to show signs of improvement. His medical team remains optimistic that his recovery is progressing. (His fiancee) Megan remains by his side and is relaying the countless good wishes and prayers that his family, friends and fans have been sending their way.”
As previously reported, the truck driver who was behind the wheel of the big rig that crashed into the limo carrying Morgan and his entourage has pleaded not guilty to charges of vehicular homicide and assault by auto. Meanwhile, comedians including Louis C.K. and Judd Apatow have publicly taken to asking TMZ to remove video footage of the crash from their website, which includes a clip of comedian Ardie Fuqua being removed from the wreckage.
