*Unfortunately we have terrible news to report about funny man Tracy Morgan.

The actor and comedian is in intensive care after the limousine bus he was riding in was involved in a multi-vehicle accident on the New Jersey Turnpike, according to police.

A spokesperson at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Center in New Brunswick, New Jersey, says a patient named Tracy Morgan is in critical condition there.

The vehicle carrying Morgan and six others was involved in a six-vehicle accident on the turnpike near Cranbury Township at about 1 a.m. Saturday, Sgt. First Class Greg Williams told The Associated Press.

According to the AP, Williams said one person died in the crash that occurred in the northbound lanes of the turnpike near mile marker 71.5.

Williams said he does not believe alcohol played a role in the accident, but that it is under investigation.

In addition to the bus, the wreck involved two tractor-trailers and an SUV, he said.

One person was killed and seven others hospitalized with injuries, authorities said. The fatality may have been another passenger in the limo bus, Williams said.

Peter Haigney, a spokesman for the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, said four patients are being treated there.

Three are in critical condition and one is in fair condition, he said.

Morgan, 46, performed Friday night at the Dover Downs Hotel and Casino in Dover, Delaware, the venue said.
