VIDEO: First Look - Tracy Morgan Greets the Press Outside His NJ Home
Tracy Morgan, who last month was critically injured in a deadly car accident on the New Jersey Turnpike, returned to his home in Cresskill, NJ yesterday following a month of hospitalization and rehab.
In a video obtained exclusively by Entertainment Tonight, the comedian was all smiles as he greeted the press outside his home, making his first public comments since the horrific accident.
"I feel strong. Love you. Thank you very much. I appreciate it," commented Morgan when asked by reporters how he was doing. Watch the video below!
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.
