Tracy Morgan was spotted behind the wheel of a Lamborghini Sunday, just over a year after he was involved in a car accident in which his friend was killed.

Steve Lacy, anchorman for the local Fox 5 news station, spotted Morgan, who is shown flashing a peace sign to the camera, and posted the picture to his Facebook page with the caption, "Does it get more On Brand than this?! I spotted Tracy Morgan driving a Lamborghini this weekend in Manhattan. I spoke with him briefly. He said he was feeling well and when I said I loved the car he said 'thanks' and that he was being careful behind the wheel. As a huge Tracy Morgan fan it was so great to see him back out in public and feeling better. Much love Tracy!"

Last June, Morgan's limousine collided with a Walmart truck in New Jersey, killing 62-year-old James McNair. Morgan was rushed by helicopter to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital with a broken femur and nose and several broken ribs, leaving him in a coma for two weeks.

The "30 Rock" actor sued Walmart for negligence on the ground that the truck driver, Kevin Roper, had dozed off prior to hitting Morgan's limo. The suit, filed in July 2014, alleged that Walmart "knew or should have known" that Roper had been awake "for more than 24 consecutive hours" ahead of the accident, violating Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration regulations.

Roper, who was charged with death by auto and four counts of assault by auto, had attempted to delay Morgan's lawsuit, arguing that evidence brought to light in Morgan's civil case would be harmful to the driver's criminal case in relation to the crash. However, he was denied.

Roper has pleaded not guilty in his case.

In the past couple of months, photos had surfaced of Morgan still undergoing rehabilitation, and during court proceedings in November it was revealed that Morgan was still undergoing treatment for traumatic brain injury, which includes speech, cognitive, vocational and physical therapies. On May 27, Walmart settled the lawsuit with an undisclosed amount.

"Walmart did right by me and my family, and for my associates and their families," Morgan said after the settlement. "I am grateful that the case was resolved amicably."
