Tracy Morgan Still Struggling After Crash

Tracy Morgan

An attorney for Tracy Morgan says the former Saturday Night Live actor is having a tough time recovering from a June accident on the New Jersey Turnpike that left a fellow comedian dead.

Attorney Benedict Morelli tells The Star-Ledger newspaper that Morgan relies on a wheelchair and it may be months before he can fully walk again. Morelli says Morgan appears to be making progress, but it will be a month before he is assessed "cognitively."

Morgan broke his leg, nose and several ribs in a six-car accident involving his limo bus, and comedian James McNair was killed. The bus was struck by a Walmart truck.

The truck driver has pleaded not guilty to vehicular homicide and assault by auto.

Morgan accused Walmart of negligence in a federal lawsuit.
