NEW BRUNSWICK, New Jersey - Actor, comedian and author Tracy Morgan was critically injured early Saturday morning after the limousine bus he was riding in was involved in a multi-vehicle crash.
The New Jersey State Police say the crash occurred on the Jersey Turnpike as Morgan was returning from a show in Delaware.
The limo bus was carrying Morgan and six others when it was involved in the crash, also involving two tractor-trailers, an SUV, and two other cars.
The limo bus ended up on its side after the impact.
A passenger inside that limo bus died.
It wasn't immediately clear what caused the pileup.
The 45-year-old comedian is a New York City native who got his start after joining "Saturday Night Live" in 1996 and was on the sketch-comedy program for seven years before leaving to star in "The Tracy Morgan Show" in 2003. That show lasted just one season.
In 2006, Morgan found a long-running role on NBC's hit show "30 Rock," which was created by "SNL" co-star Tina Fey.
