Tracy Morgan Returns Home After Hospital and Rehab Stay
Tracy Morgan has finally gone home after spending more than a month in a hospital and rehab following a serious car accident on June 7 that left him critically injured.
The New York Post reports that Morgan was released on Friday to his Cresskill, NJ home where he will continue physical rehab and therapy at home.
“Tracy has been released from the rehabilitation center and will continue his recovery efforts at home with an aggressive outpatient program,” his publicist Lewis Kay said in a statement. “He asked me to pass along his sincerest gratitude to everyone who has helped him get to this point.”
Yesterday, it was revealed that Morgan and his lawyers have filed a lawsuit against Walmart last week, citing the company's negligence in causing the major traffic accident. The suit claims that the company didn't take proper precautions in preventing tractor-trailer driver Kevin Roper from driving after being awake for 24 hours. Roper's trailer swerved, and hit, Morgan's limousine van on the New Jersey Turnpike during the early hours of June 7. One passenger in Morgan's van was killed, while others were treated for various degrees of injuries.
