The June 7th fatal crash occured when Morgan and his fellow passengers were returning from a comedy gig in Delaware. Morgan suffered several Cracked ribs and a broken leg, while his friend and fellow comedian James 'Jimmy Mack' McNair was killed. Other passengers in the limousine bus were also seriously injured. The limo was slammed into by a Walmart tractor-trailer driven by 35-year-old Kevin Roper.
Lewis Kay, a publicist for Morgan, released a statement revealing: "Tracy has been released from the rehabilitation center and will continue his recovery efforts at home with an aggressive outpatient program. He asked me to pass along his sincerest gratitude to everyone who has helped him get to this point."
The 45-year-old lives with his fiancée, model Megan Wollover, and their one year-old daughter, Maven Sonae.
