Actor-comedian's condition now rated as fair after horror crash.
A report by the National Transportation Safety Board regarding the accident that seriously injured actor-comedian Tracy Morgan has revealed the Wal-Mart truck that rear-ended Morgan’s Sprinter van was speeding at the moment of impact. The accident occurred on the New Jersey Turnpike near Cranbury, New Jersey, where the 2012 Mercedes Sprinter limo van that was carrying Morgan and four others was struck from the rear by a Peterbilt tractor-trailer.
