Tracy Morgan was critically injured in an accident on the NJ Turnpike this past weekend, and rumours were circulating that he may need to have his leg amputated due to the extent of his injuries. However, his rep has now confirmed that while he’s undergone surgery and will face a long recovery time, he will keep both of his legs.
“Tracy remains in critical but stable condition. His fianceé Megan is by his side,” according to a statement to PEOPLE. “As we shared yesterday, Tracy had surgery on his broken leg.”
“This recovery will be arduous and we hope that you can be patient during this difficult time,” his rep’s statement continues.
Such a shame that this happened – the driver, who’s been arrested, apparently admitted that he hadn’t slept in 24 hours before getting behind the wheel. Now, of course, one person is dead and two others (besides Tracy) are gravely injured. It’s not worth driving wherever it is you need to go when you’re in no condition to do so.
Here’s hoping everyone recovers soon!
