Comedian and actor Tracy Morgan is said to be showing signs of improvement, although he remains in critical but stable condition, reports People magazine, citing a statement from his representative.
"While Tracy remains in critical, but stable, condition, he continues to show signs of improvement," the statement said. "His medical team remains optimistic that his recovery is progressing."
The "Saturday Night Live" and “30 Rock” alum was injured early Saturday when a Walmart truck reportedly triggered a fatal crash on the New Jersey Turnpike. Comedian James McNair, a mentor to Morgan, was killed in the collision.
Two other people, including Morgan's assistant, Jeffrey Millea, were also seriously injured in the crash.
The truck driver pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges of vehicular homicide and assault by auto.
"Morgan, 45, has stayed in the intensive care unit at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, New Jersey, as his fiancee Megan Wollover watches over him. He successfully underwent leg surgery Sunday," the People story reports.
The piece quotes Morgan's rep saying: "Megan remains by his side and is relaying the countless good wishes and prayers that his family, friends and fans have been sending their way. In addition, Jeff's wife asked us to pass along that Jeff has also shown much improvement over the past few days. She is very thankful for the love and support she and their family continue to receive."
