Actor Suffering Severe Brain Damage 5 Months After Car Crash

This is just too sad...

Tracy Morgan is fighting toward recovery, but is also struggling through a traumatic brain injury after his near-death car accident with a Wal-Mart truck five months ago.

The comic actor's legal rep revealed that the 46-year-old actor could never be the same again while speaking of the comedian’s injuries in court in New Jersey on Tuesday, Nov. 18.

Tracy’s lawyerBenedict Morelli said on Nov. 18, “He’s fighting to get better... If there’s a chance for him to be back to the Tracy Morgan he once was, he’s going to try to do that. But we just don’t know because of the severity of the injuries that he sustained and the fact that he had such a severe brain injury.”

While trying not to detail the 30 Rock star’s injuries in court, but highlighting the severity of his current state, Benedict added: “When you have a traumatic brain injury it takes a very long time to find out how you’re going to do and how much you’re going to recover.”


“You just don’t know. So that’s where he is. He’s still fighting and trying to live his life at the same time and trying to get better, and he’s just not better. We’re hoping and praying to get him back to where he was. But the jury’s out.”

We wish Tracy a quick recovery.
