Wow, how times have changed!
Tracy Morgan: Truck Driver Responsible For The Accident Turns Himself In & Is Charged With Death By Auto
At least he’s doing the responsible thing!
Kevin Roper was driving the semi-truck that his the limo bus, and he has turned himself in. The 35-year-old driver was charged with 1 count of death by auto and 4 counts of assault by auto, and he’s now out after making the $50k bail.
It was reported that Roper was ‘dozing’ and he didn’t see the cars stopped ahead of him, swerving at the last second. He still hit the limo bus, a 2012 Mercedes Benz Sprinter and another tractor-trailer, which hit an SUV and two more cars!!!
As for Tracy, he’s still in critical condition, but one source confirmed that he’s conscious. His ex wife said that “he’s not in good shape,” but is in stable condition, though still critical. At the time of the accident, he’d suffered a broken leg, and several other injuries.
Fellow comedian Harris Stanton was released from the hospital, but Jeff Millea and Ardie Fuqua are still getting treated.
Our hearts go out to all of the families involved in this, and we’re hoping for the speediest of recoveries!
