Tracy Morgan First Interview Since Car Crash Will Appear on ‘Today’
The 30 Rock actor was critically injured in the accident that occurred June 7, 2014, and has been out of the spotlight since suffering from head trauma, a broken leg and broken ribs in result of the incident.
A Walmart truck driver struck the comedian’s limo while driving on the New Jersey Turnpike, which carried three other people. One of the passengers was killed and the other two, like Morgan, were critically injured. The news about the interview broke only a day after the lawsuit against Walmart was settled.
“Walmart did right by me and my family and for my associates and their families,” Morgan said in a statement. “I am grateful that the case was resolved amicably.”
Morgan and his lawyer, Benedict Morelli, will be interviewed at Today‘s Rockefeller studios by Matt Lauer on June 1.
