posted in: News | 0

On Saturday, June 7, a limo bus
carrying comic James McNair, actor
Tracy Morgan and comics Harris
Stanton and Ardie Fuqua crashed on
the New Jersey Turnpike.
The limo bus, which was carrying two
drivers, overturned at around 1 a.m. at
Cranbury Township, N.J. The accident
also involved five other vehicles,
including two tractor trailers and an
SUV. McNair, best known as “Jimmy
Mack” to the comic community and
churchgoers, was killed in the crash.
Authorities told the AP that the 62-
year-old comic of Peekskill, N.Y. was
pronounced dead at the scene. McNair
was named as one of Morgan’s comedy
writers and close friends. He also
hosted “The Original Uncle Jimmy
Mack’s Amateur Hour.”
Morgan is currently in critical
condition in a New Jersey hospital,
along with three others from the bus.
According to the AP, two occupants
weren’t injured.
“Tracy remains in critical condition at
Robert Wood Johnson Hospital,”
Morgan’s representative, Lewis Kay,
said in a statement. “He sustained these
injuries in an accident that occurred
early this morning as one of several
passengers in a chauffeured SUV
returning from a tour date in
Delaware. His family is now with him
and he is receiving excellent care. We
don’t anticipate much of a change in
his condition today but will provide a
further update once more information
becomes available.”
