Sounds like he's really making some progress!

Following a frightening car crash that killed one of his fellow passengers and left him seriously injured, Tracy Morgan has been released from the hospital and is now recovering in a rehab center.

Tracy has been transferred to an undisclosed rehab center, where he is expected to remain for the next few weeks,” his rep said in a statement. “While he is continuing to show signs of improvement, he still has a long way to go. He and Megan wanted to publicly express their deepest gratitude to everyone at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital for the unbelievable care and attention they provided him.”

On June 6 a Walmart truck slammed into a limousine carrying Morgan and his entourage, and the 30 Rock star suffered a broken leg, a broken femur, a broken nose and broken ribs in the collision. Morgan's comic mentor James McNair was killed in the crash and two other passengers, including Morgan's assistant, Jeffrey Millea, were seriously injured.

Kevin Roper, the driver of the Walmart big rig, pleaded not guilty to vehicular homicide and assault by auto in New Brunswick, New Jersey on Wednesday. According to a complaint filed by New Jersey State Police, Roper was awake more than 24 hours before the accident occurred, and if convicted on all charges, he faces up to fifteen years in jail.

Tracy Morgan is in critical condition after being involved in a six-vehicle car crash in Cranbury, New Jersey early on Saturday morning.

The 30 Rock star was in a limousine bus with six other passengers on I-95 when the accident occurred, and the other vehicles involved included two tractor-trailers, an SUV and two passenger cars. New Jersey State Police Sgt. Gregory Williams told Fox News that one of the tractor trailers may have rear-ended the limo bus Morgan was in, and though it is still not clear what happened, "drug or alcohol use is not suspected as a cause of the accident."

One person in the same car as Morgan died on the scene, and the actor was transported via helicopter to intensive care unit of Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. Four other crash victims were brought to the hospital; three were in critical condition and one was in fair condition.

Morgan performed a stand up comedy show on Friday night at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino in Delaware, and his scheduled appearance at the Fillmore Charlotte in North Carolina on Saturday night has been canceled.

Jun 10, 2011 11:50 AM

Morgan230.3.jpgThursday morning 30 Rock's Tracy Morgan issued an apology for his anti-gay rant , but gay rights organization GLAAD is saying the "I'm sorry" is not enough.

Said GLAAD president Jarrett Barrios:

    “Jokes that make light of violence directed at gay and lesbian youth aren’t only offensive, they put our kids in harm’s way. Tracy Morgan must not only apologize, but assure us that this won’t happen again and send a clear message to Americans that anti-gay violence is no joke.”

Morgan said in a written statement:

    “I want to apologize to my fans and the gay & lesbian community ... I’m not a hateful person and don’t condone any kind of violence against others. ... even in a comedy club this clearly went too far and was not funny in any context."

GLAAD said it has reached out to Morgan in hopes of arranging a meeting with him and family members of those who have lost children to anti-gay violence. "If Tracy Morgan is sincere, he should take us up on meeting these families," Barrios said. "Perhaps by hearing their stories, he will learn that while we all love humor, this is no laughing matter.”
