Trucker in Tracy Morgan crash pleads not guilty
Roper was driving a Wal-Mart truck early Saturday when he allegedly swerved to avoid slowed traffic on the New Jersey Turnpike and plowed into Morgan’s limo.
The 45-year-old Morgan suffered broken ribs and a broken leg. His friend and fellow comedian James McNair was killed, and two other passengers were seriously injured.
Morgan underwent surgery for his broken leg and was in critical but stable condition Tuesday at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital.
