The guy driving the Walmart truck that crashed into Tracy Morgan’s limo bus Saturday morning has been charged with death by auto … TMZ has learned.
The Middlesex County Prosecutors Office says 35-year old Kevin Roper was charged with 1 count of death by auto and 4 counts of assault by auto.
Roper’s bail has been set at $50k … and prosecutors expect him to surrender.
As we previously reported, Morgan was riding in a limo bus on the NJ Turnpike on his way home from a gig last night … when it was rear-ended by an 18-wheeler and overturned.
Tracy and another passenger were airlifted to a nearby hospital where they remain in critical condition. Another passenger, James McNair, was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to reports … Morgan’s opening act Ardie Fuqua — who posted a photo of Tracy roughly 30 minutes before the accident — is also in critical condition.
Prosecutors say the cause of the 6-vehicle wreck is still under investigation.
