The truck driver who was allegedly “sleeping” when he crashed into a limo, critically injuring 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan and killing a close friend of the comedian, will be charged for the crash. Trucker Kevin Roper will be charged with death by auto and four accounts of assault by auto.
Morgan’s writer James McNair was killed in the crash, and Morgan, his assistant Jeffrey Millea, and fellow comedian Ardie Fuqua are all in critical condition. The trucker failed to see slow-moving traffic ahead, and swerved to avoid a crash, only to slam into the back of the limo. This caused a tractor-trailer, SUV, and two other cars to all crash into the limo as well.
