According to MSN, police say the actor/comedian Tracy Morgan was in intensive care Saturday after the limo bus he and six others was riding in, was involved in a multi-car accident on the New Jersey Turnpike.  One person in the limo was killed, and three others are in critical condition, including the former star of "SNL" and "30 Rock."  TMZ reports, authorities said 2 tractor-trailers, 2 cars, an SUV and the limo bus were involved in the chain collision.

Sgt. 1st Class Greg Williams told The Associated Press, the accident occurred at about one in the morning and that the vehicle carrying the 45-year old star, also had six other passengers when it was overturned.  Williams also said, it's unclear as to what caused the accident, but it shut the Jersey Turnpike down for more than five hours.

It's being reported that the accident occurred in the northbound lane of the turnpike.  So far, it's unknown if there are any other injuries.  It's believed Tracy Morgan is at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Center in New Brunswick, but it hasn't been confirmed.  All a hospital spokesman would say is, they did have a patient named Tracy Morgan is in critical condition there.

Tracy Morgan was on the road doing a string of performances and had just wrapped-up a stand-up gig Friday night, at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino in Delaware.  He was on his way home when the accident happened.  His next appearance was scheduled for tonight at the Fillmore Charlotte in North Carolina, but it's been canceled.
