American comedian Tracy Morgan has been transferred from hospital to a rehabilitation centre after being involved in a car accident earlier this month, NBC News has reported.
The 30 Rock actor's agent reportedly said Morgan was expected to stay at the undisclosed centre for "the next few weeks", adding that he "still had a long way to go" in his recovery from injuries sustained in the crash.
One person was killed and six others were injured in the accident involving a truck, Morgan's limo bus and four other vehicles in New Jersey on 7 June.
Wal-Mart CEO Bill Simon has said his company will take "full responsibility" of a truck crash that badly injured actor and comedian Tracy Morgan, "if it's determined that our truck caused the accident."

We are working quickly to understand what happened and are cooperating fully with law enforcement to aid their investigation.
The facts are continuing to unfold. If it's determined that our truck caused the accident, Walmart will take full responsibility.
