Morgan feeling ‘strong’, suing WalmartComment on this story
London - Tracy Morgan is feeling "strong" after his recent accident.
The 45-year-old actor, who sustained serious injuries, including a broken femur, broken nose and broken ribs, when a Walmart truck crashed into the vehicle he was traveling in on the New Jersey Turnpike last month, was seen looking noticably thinner and used a frame to help him walk as he left his home in Cresskill, New Jersey on Monday, but insisted he is on the mend.
He flashed a peace sign to waiting reporters and said as he walked to his car: "I'm okay. I feel strong. Love you. Thank you very much. I appreciate it."
The '30 Rock' star's spokesperson confirmed at the weekend that the actor would undergo an "aggressive outpatient programme" after being released from a rehabilitation facility where he had been treated following the accident.
The crash, which occurred on June 7, killed Tracy's comedy writer friend James McNair, who was traveling home from a gig with him and a group of friends.
Lawyers for the actor, his assistant Jeffrey Millea, his wife Krista Millea and comedian Ardie Fuqua filed a lawsuit against Wal-Mart last week accusing the retail giant of negligence because its truck driver Kevin Roper had allegedly been "awake for more than 24 consecutive hours" when he caused the six-car pile up.
Tracy spent 10 days in a critical condition before being transferred to the rehab facility on June 20, but a source previously said he still "has a long way to go" before he fully recovers.
He is seeking compensatory and statutory damages, punitive damages, legal fees, as well as pre- and post-judgment interest at a trial by jury. - BANG Showbiz
