The part of this story that I like is that Tracy Morgan is just riding around in a limo-bus.
The rest of it is kinda shitty.
Just riding around? He was leaving a show that he had just done.
His skirt was too short.
Yea, clearly there is a huge difference between just riding around in a limobus, and just riding around in a limobus after a show.
Damn you, Iannis.
Someone call Dr. Spaceman!
Seriously though that sucks.
Edit: Now they're reporting that one of the truck drivers has been charged for causing the crash

I've never been in a limo; do they have seat belts and do people usually wear them? I'd assume yes and no.
one new report i saw said it was a 9 person van, but didn't see one listed on their website, this is one of the 14 persons buses they have
I was wondering exactly what kind it was but was too lazy to look it up.
Fuck, that must've been a mess.
One of his most recent tweets:
I wish him the best of luck and a full recovery.Dover downs I'm coming with truck loads of funny Delaware stand up get those tix while u can baby!!!!!
They say he went to Robert Wood Johnson hospital, and they're pretty solid, so that's good news.
i bet if you black light that bus you'd see jizz everywhere
A guy in the Limo made a post on Twitter shortly before the accident.
That's is the bus they were in. I see seat belts. Weather or not they were wearing them remains to be seen.
don't know if this can be believed. New York Daily News a legit paper? looks like a tabloid.
sorry for posting the wrong one, still don't see that style listed on any of their companies sites.The actor's ex-wife, Sabina Morgan, told the New York Daily News that Morgan was unconscious and has a broken leg among other injuries — but doctors anticipated he would recover.
some pics of the wrecked van
It's not a legit paper but they get their gossip right once in a while.
That is less damage than you might expect for getting smacked with an 18 wheeler.
I liked Scare Tactics.
Even if you have seatbelts on in a limo, you're typically seated sideways and will get fucked up anyways since humans don't bend so well sideways.
he is a terrible comedian and is just a token for tv programs or bad movies. it doesnt make him deserve to be in a terrible accident like this. i hope he recovers and im sorry that one of his friends died.
You already proved you do care by opening the thread and making a post. Some people just like to be shitty on the internet.
Who gives a fuck.

Here's the same story live at Helium Comedy Club in Philly last year.
Several media outlets reporting he's on the mend, but will be hospitalized for a few weeks with broken ribs, nose, femur, etc... But looks like short of a complication he will make a full recovery physically. Mentally will probably take some more time. Very glad to hear it.
I don't mind the hate posts, I like to post funny pictures and fuck around with RIP threads too. Not like anyone here is his family, and these threads are boring without humor and hate. In the grand scheme of things as much as I like certain celebrities, I'd trade 1000 of them for a person I actually know and care about. Hell, I'd even trade a dozen or so for dumbfucks like Izo and Fat Phoenix.
I really like Morgan and his comedy and it was very sad to hear someone died and others seriously injured. I wish them all well and hope for the best.
She worked with his insanity for years I guess, realized how genuinely funny it is, and realized that no one will ever be as good at writing a character like Tracy Morgan as Tracy is at being a character like Tracy Morgan.
Walmart Faults Tracy Morgan for Not Wearing Seatbelt During Car Accident (Exclusive)
Walmart says that injuries "were caused, in whole or in part, by plaintiffs' failure to properly wear an appropriate available seatbelt restraint device."
Morgan was among several people injured who are now suing Walmart for negligence.
Good for them.
I see this being a huge shit storm, as it rightly should be. I realize Walmart is just trying to lower their own damages, but still. Someone is dead and 2 people were severely hurt as a direct consequence to an action their driver 100% caused.
I wear mine. Just saying, Walmart's in for a world of trouble. More so than before, I think. Maybe these comics will become more aggressive at suing them now. Hell, I don't know how much they're suing them as it already stands.
Nobody wears seatbelts in a limobus or any other bus for that matter. Not that they shouldn't, but they just don't.
And in 99% of taxies. Reasoning? The belts are fucking disgusting from everyone else touching them.
Yeah. I don't either. So I'm definitely a fucking hypocrite. But I've also never had a friend sitting next to me turned into a pile of bloody goo. I hope that would change my mind.
I wear my belt. Just saying.
I don't wear a belt on a limo. Pretty sure that's against limo rules.
walmart might have denied this trucker works directly for them. goodbye big payday. i doubt the trucking company has walmart's deep pockets.
Seatbelts on a limo are of dubious value anyways since everyone is seated sideways. Your body doesn't bend so great that way.
Not wearing your seatbelt in a car is pretty dumb.
Listen to big peonix on all things health, safety, and life, you be alright.
No one in the history of limos has ever worn a seat belt in a limo.
i didnt even know they had seatbelts in limos. i barely remember ever being in a limo because i always seem to be drunk as fuck whenever i am inside one. doesnt mean thats the correct way though.
It's law in NC as well.
Click it or Ticket!
We paid $50,000,000 for that slogan.
Its a law here in NJ, where this accident took place.
You guys are getting off the subject. They are in this condition only because the Walmart semi stuck their stopped limo while going around 65 mph. Seat belts would NOT have helped anyone. The limo was completely destroyed by the semi. You're acting like the media by focusing on all the little shit that didn't matter instead of the actual incident.
What did the driver have for breakfast? Did he get along with his parents? How about the comedians, did they ever donate to charity?
Oh, none of that is important either?
Have you never followed a lawsuit before or something? Walmart's lawyers are doing what they're paid to do: trying to minimize the eventual damages. It's pretty rare that something like this is all or nothing. And it's doubtful that Morgan and Co. are only suing Walmart. There's probably multiple counterparties or whatever the term is. And everyone will point fingers at everyone else in order to minimize their damages. Would seat belts have made much of a difference in this situation? Probably not. But if bringing them up means that Walmart's damages are reduced by 10-20%, then the lawyers did their jobs.Originally Posted by Xarpolis
I don't get why anyone is surprised by this. It's typical legal wrangling.
I understand that it's typical legal wrangling, but it changes the point of this thread. You're focusing on seat belts. I realize the court will do the same after lawyers are involved, but you guys are as well. That's what I was pointing out.
I'll RRP you for so long your grandkids won't be able to post here!
Lawyer: Tracy Morgan Still Struggling With Severe Brain Injury - NBC News
Apparently it's unclear if he will ever make a full recovery.
I have seen enough sitcoms to know that brain injuries are always reversed by receiving another blow to the head. I wonder if they have tried that.
They sure it is a brain injury? I like Tracy, but he is a pretty goofy dude to begin with. Unless he is all coherent and stuff, then that is frightening and I wish him a speedy recovery!
Of course he has major brain injury. He has a pending lawsuit vs walmart. He doesn't spend his money wisely nor make a huge amount. So add it up. I am sure any of us would have major brain injury etc etc with a pending lawsuit vs walmart. Sure is he hurt? I be the is, but on the level they are talking about it's highly unlikely. The dude was was released 13 days afterwards . If he had major brain trauma, I highly doubt he would have left so soon.

how much brain injury are we talking? did his skull get shatterered and they had to stick a metal plate on his noggin? even then you can still lead a mostly normal life, your short term memory might be shit though.
I don't think you understand what TBIs can be.
