[ # ] Tracy Morgan doesn’t remember the accident
June 1st, 2015 under Tracy Morgan

Tracy Morgan broke his silence this morning on Today about the horrible accident that claimed his friend and left him unable to perform since that fateful night when his limobus was hit by a Walmart truck.
On June 7, 2014, Tracy Morgan was heading home from a gig in Delaware with some of his friends when their limobus was hit by an 18 wheeler. It is a miracle that anyone survived, yet all but one of them did. For weeks, it was unclear how he was doing and today we learned the extent of how bad things were for him because of that night. After the accident, he spent two weeks in a coma. When he finally came out of it, he learned his friend, Jimmy Mack, has passed away that night. After he was released from the hospital he went to facility that is known for their expertise with head traumas. It was there that doctors and nurses assured him he was going to be OK. It took some time, but he eventually realized they were right. During the interview he expressed how thankful he was to all of them for taking care of him.
He has his good days and his bad days since that accident. Since he suffered a head injury, there are days when he can’t remember things. Thankfully for him, one of the things he can’t remember is the accident. One thing he does remember, is the last time he saw his friend alive, Jimmy Mack was laughing at his joke.
Curiosity got the better of him and he looked up on YouTube to see the accident and he was also able to watch his friend’s funeral. The latter sent him into a week of depression. As he told Matt Lauer, “Bones heal. But the loss of my friend will never heal.”
This was a different side of the comedian, one that we have never seen before. So will we ever see him doing his one of a kind of act again? He said, “I love comedy. I’ll never stop loving her. I love comedy and I can’t wait to get back to her, but right now my goal is just to heal and get better because I’m not 100 percent yet, I’m not.” Then he added, “And when I’m there, you’ll know it. I’ll get back to making you laugh. I promise you.” And I promise him, we will all be here for you when you are ready.
I hope he continues down this path of recovery. Whenever he hits a speed bump, I hope he knows us fans are here to support him always!
