Yesterday, Tracy Morgan’s rep gave an encouraging update regarding the comedian’s condition after his limo bus was struck by a truck in the early hours of Saturday morning. The crash claimed the life of comedian James “Jimmy Mack” McNair and injured several others, including Morgan.
“While Tracy remains in critical condition, he has been more responsive today, which is an incredibly encouraging sign,” said rep Lewis Kay in a Sunday statement. “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.”
Well, Media Take Out has a world exclusive on his condition. They claim to have had contact with an anonymous source person “who WORKS at Robert Wood Johnson Hospital – where Tracy is staying.”
[Tracy] suffered a number of traumatic injuries, the most serious is his leg. It was crushed during the accident. [Doctors] are working hard to save his leg, but it looks like they may have to amputate.”
Given the previous statement made by Morgan’s rep, this claim doesn’t seem completely out of the realm of possibility. However, it could have been made by the graveyard shift janitor at Robert Wood Johnson Hospital, so take it for what it’s worth.
