1 Year After Deadly Crash, Tracy Morgan Makes Rare Public Appearance at Yankees Game
Tracy Morgan, who’s on the mend after a horrific car crash one year ago, was spotted in the stands at Tuesday night's Yankees game in New York City.
The comic was seen cheering on the team with his two year-old daughter Maven and his fiancee Megan. He seemed to be having a great time.
In June, Morgan opened up to the Today show's Matt Lauer about the terrible accident that almost cost him his life. A Walmart truck on the New Jersey Turnpike had collided with Morgan’s limo bus. Fellow comic James McNair was killed.
The 30 Rock star said, “As you can see there are scars on my head. There are times when I have my good days and my bad days. I forget things. There are times when I get headaches and nosebleeds.”
Lauer asked, “What has the last year been like emotionally?”
‘I've been down, but I have my my family, I have my wife, Megan, we are about to be married, and my daughter and my son, so they keep my spirits up,” he said.
Morgan choked up as he remembered his friend, saying, “He was a good man and it just hurts me to see that he's gone.”
Lauer asked, “When did you find out he had died in the crash?”
“Two weeks later, after I came out of the coma. My lady told me, we put Jimmy to rest,” he said.
Morgan still looked like he'd face many months of physical rehabilitation -- but from his appearance at the Yankees game, it certainly seemed he was in good spirits.
