NEW YORK (AP) — Tracy Morgan says he remembers nothing about the limo crash that left him in a coma, and that, a year later, he still has bad days as well as good days.
Appearing live on Monday’s “Today” show, he sat clutching a cane and became emotional as he recalled learning two weeks after the June 7, 2014, crash that fellow comedian, James “Jimmy Mack” McNair, had died.
Morgan said he came across a video of McNair’s funeral on YouTube and said “I lost it for about a week.”
The interview was Morgan’s first public appearance since the accident on the New Jersey Turnpike.
Last week he settled a lawsuit with Wal-Mart, owner of the truck that slammed into the back of the limo van carrying Morgan and others. Morgan suffered head trauma, a broken leg and broken ribs and is still recovering.
