NEW JERSEY - Actor and Comedian Tracy Morgan remains in critical condition following a weekend accident that left two others critically injured and another man dead.

The 45-year-old had just wrapped up a performance in New Jersey and was riding in a bus limo that was hit by a Walmart truck.

The driver of the truck has been charged with death by auto and four counts of assault by auto.

Police say he failed to slow down for traffic Saturday and hit Morgan's limo bus when he swerved to avoid an accident.

Morgan is expected to remain hospitalized for several weeks.

Investigators say the truck driver who caused the accident hadn't slept for more than 24 hours.
