*The truck driver who crashed into Tracy Morgan ‘s limo-bus critically injuring the comedian, killing another and injuring two other people, has turned himself in.
It happened Saturday night after being charged with death by auto and 35-year old Kevin Roper (pictured in mug shot above) bonded out hours after being booked, according to TMZ.
As we previously reported, Morgan was riding in a limo bus on the NJ Turnpike on his way home from a gig last night … when it was rear-ended by a Wal-Mart 18-wheeler and overturned. Reportedly Morgan was “dozing” at the wheel at the time of the accident.
“[The] driver failed to observe slow-moving traffic ahead,” New Jersey State Police Sgt. First Class Gregory Williams said, according to ABC News. “He observed at the last minute—just prior to impact—the limo bus carrying Morgan and his party.”
One person died in the crash — Jimmy Mack McNair, a comic who was a passenger in Tracy’s limo-bus.
Morgan is still in critical condition but according to one unconfirmed report he’s conscious.
A rep for Walmart says Kevin has been suspended pending the police investigation’s outcome.
