Tracy Morgan Reflects On The ‘Horrific Accident’ That Nearly Took His Life Five Years Ago – Perez Hilton

So often it happens in life that we gain perspective about what’s really important after a terrible accident or near-death experience…

And such is the case recently for comedian Tracy Morgan, who on Thursday night relayed to his fans and followers on social media that it’s been exactly five years since the “horrific accident”

As you may recall, back on June 7, 2014, Morgan was a passenger in a van involved in a terrible six-car pileup on a New Jersey highway. The accident severely injured Morgan — the comedian was air lifted to a hospital with multiple broken bones and other serious injuries, and later spent nearly a month in a physical rehabilitation center as he recovered. The crash also killed Morgan’s longtime friend and collaborator James McNair.

Besides the obvious effects of the accident on the 50-year-old’s loved ones and those involved who were hurt or killed, the crash set off a long series of lawsuits with WalMart — the employer of the truck driver who first set off the pileup — and seriously affected Morgan’s career for several years after, as he struggled to fully recover and move forward.

But it’s clear he’s in a better place now. Tracy reminisced about that awful night and the friend he lost in a series of tweets sent out late Thursday evening from his official account (below):

“Five years ago tonight, me and my friends, Jimmy Mac, Jeff, @ARDIEFUQUA, @HarrisStanton, Ty, & Joceleyn were in a horrific accident. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t miss my friend Jimmy Mac, who sadly lost his life that night. I love you Jimmy. I thank GOD for my family. I am eternally grateful for the love and support they give me. My wife, daughter, sons, and friends are what got me back on my feet. I live every day trying to do right by them and make the most of this second chance.

I am emotional right now so bear with me but I also have to thank my professional family. The folks at @TBSNetwork who got me back doing what I love to do best, entertaining people. MY YODA, Lorne Michaels. Going back to @nbcsnl was the first time I knew I would be ok. Finally, I have to shout out my reps Steve Smooke, Matt Frost, Mark Landesman, Jessica Mooney, Ben Morelli & Lewis Kay, who stand by me always. Love you all!! God Bless and please spread love and kindness to one another.”

Here’s the full tweet stream as it appeared on the social networking site (below):

Powerful, powerful stuff…

And despite the tragedy of that awful night five years ago, and even another car accident this week with his brand new Bugatti, it’s nevertheless still inspiring to see the funny man back on his feet again and with such a positive, grateful attitude towards life.
