Trucker charged in fatal accident that injured Tracy Morgan

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. — A hospital official says actor Tracy Morgan and two other men are in critical condition one day after a tractor-trailer rammed into his chauffeured limousine bus, setting off a chain-reaction crash that left one member of his entourage dead.

Hospital spokeswoman Zenaida Mendez said Sunday the three people transported to Robert Wood Johnson Hospital after Saturday's crash on the New Jersey Turnpike remained critical.

The 45-year-old former "Saturday Night Live" and "30 Rock" cast member, Jeffrey Millea, 36, of Shelton, Connecticut, and comedian Ardie Fuqua Jr. were listed in critical condition at the hospital Saturday.

The crash took the life of Morgan's friend, comedian James McNair.

Truck driver Kevin Roper, 35, of Jonesboro, Georgia, has been charged with death by auto and faces four counts of assault by auto.
