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.
