Tracy Morgan Gives Tearful First Interview Since Last Year’s Brutal Car Accident

Tracy Morgan has remained mostly under the radar in the year since the June 7, 2014 car accident that almost took his life. His vehicle was struck by a Walmart tractor-trailer on the New Jersey Turnpike, which badly injured him and killed his friend and mentor James McNair. As he underwent a long rehabilitation process, Morgan filed a lawsuit against Walmart for negligence. The case settled last week. For the first time since the accident, he gave an emotional interview, revealing that his girlfriend and daughter almost came with him on the road that night and lamenting the loss of James McNair. He told “Today” that “bones heal, but the loss of my friend will never heal.” [Today]
