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.
"I lost it for about a week," he said, explaining that he watched the footage because he "had to know" what happened to his friend.
The interview was Morgan's first public appearance since the crash on the New Jersey Turnpike.
In it, he revealed that his entire family -- who he usually takes on the road -- would have been on that doomed tour bus had it not been for his 10-month-old teething.
They "wouldn't have made it," Morgan said.
Last week he settled a lawsuit with Walmart, 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.
