Tracy Morgan ‘More Responsive,’ But Expected to Remain Hospitalized for Weeks

Tracy Morgan Hospitalized Update: 'More Responsive'

Following the six-car pileup that left Tracy Morgan and others in critical condition, Morgan’s rep Lewis Kay released an update on Sunday that said Morgan’s condition is improving, but still critical. He is expected to remain in the hospital for several more weeks.

“While Tracy remains in critical condition, he has been more responsive today, which is an incredibly encouraging sign,” the statement reads. “He sustained a number of injuries including a broken leg, a broken femur, a broken nose and several broken ribs.  He had surgery earlier today on his leg.  We expect him to remain in the hospital for several weeks.  His family is tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans.”

The “30 Rock” star was in a limousine that crashed after a dozing driver failed to observe slow-moving traffic ahead and struck the limo in the rear. The limo flipped to its left side and lost control, hitting other cars.

Morgan was returning home from a standup comedy gig in Delaware. According to hospital spokesman Peter Haigney, a total of four crash victims were brought to the hospital, with three in critical condition and one in fair condition.

    I am not sure how a broken femur, leg and ribs leave you in critical condition? I believe they must be withholding information as to the serious injuries besides a broken nose. I don’t want to over speculate, but a severe head injury is possibly something that would leave you in critical condition or broken ribs puncturing a lung. I hope the report of him being more responsive is good news.
    God Speed and Healing Prayers for Tracy and his family.

      I few the same. But the family may be withholding info so Tracy can keep his dignity if he recovers fully. I hope they will eventually share his true condition as his fans are praying and worried.

    • No doubt there was head trauma come on think about it for a minute. A broken nose, possibly head banded again something on the bus, broken ribs which could mean a punctured lung. A broken leg, sounds to me like he was tossed like a salad on that bus. We can only pray for a seedy recovery.

  8. this is an accident that has an will looked at closely ….have you ever been on a main highway with 18 wheels they have no concept of a car bike or any else god speed young man …
