Lawyer: Tracy Morgan struggling after crash


NEW YORK (AP) -- Tracy Morgan is struggling more than two months after he was injured in a motor vehicle crash that left a fellow comedian dead.

His attorney, Benedict Morelli, told NBC's "Today" show Monday the former "Saturday Night Live" cast member is fighting hard.

Morgan suffered a broken leg and broken ribs when the limousine van he was riding in was hit from behind June 7 by a Wal-Mart truck on the New Jersey Turnpike.

The wreck killed 62-year-old comedian James McNair and injured two others.

Morelli has filed suit against Wal-Mart, claiming the retailer should have known the truck driver had driven 700 miles from his home in Georgia to work in Delaware.

The truck driver has pleaded not guilty to death by auto and assault by auto charges.

How is the company to know how many miles this truck driver drove.
Stop complaining morgan. Go to a VA hospital, and see what real suffering is all about.

This is a perfect example of how lame the 'news' is on AOL and the Huff Post. The "leader" says "what Walmart should have known?" Okay .. what should Walmart have known?? And what exactly is Tracy Morgan fighting so hard? What a complete joke AOL News has turned out to be. Is this Arianna Huffington's fault, the world's biggest flibberdegibbet?

This news is misleading. Is he struggling to adjust or is he struggling for life? He was in a major accident so natually its going to take some time to rehabilitate....at least a good six month.
