A limo bus carrying the US comedian and actor Tracy Morgan overturned killing one of its passengers in a road accident today, police said.
The 45-year-old comic was seriously injured in the New Jersey crash, which left a further six people injured.
Morgan, who is best known for his roles on Saturday Night Live and the sitcom 30 Rock, is said to be in a critical condition.
The comedian has starred in 30 Rock for seven seasons, playing an unhinged, reckless comedian called Tracy Jordan in the satire about network television.
