Tracy Morgan underwent surgery Sunday as he recovers from injuries sustained during a fatal traffic accident.
Morgan, 45, was hospitalized early Saturday after his limo bus, returning from a show in Delaware, was involved in a six-vehicle crash on the New Jersey Turnpike.
“While Tracy remains in critical condition, he has been more responsive today, which is an incredibly encouraging sign,” his rep said in a statement.
“He sustained a number of injuries including a broken leg, a broken femur, a broken nose and several broken ribs. He had surgery earlier today on his leg. We expect him to remain in the hospital for several weeks. His family is tremendously overwhelmed and appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from his fans.”
