Tracy Morgan sustained several broken bone injuries in the fatal 6-vehicle crash on Saturday, and doctors have said he will remain in hospital for several weeks.
According to them, Morgan suffered a broken femur, a broken nose and several broken ribs. He underwent a surgical operation on his leg on Sunday, and is reported to be more responsive, though he is still in critical condition.
Meanwhile, Kevin Roper, the Walmart driver who caused the crash, has surrendered himself to police after being charged earlier with death and assault by auto. He bonded himself out after several hours.
He has also been suspended by Walmart pending the outcome of police investigations.
