Tracy Morgan returns to SNL 20 months after near-fatal car crash

October 18, 2015

Tracy Morgan returned to “Saturday Night Live” last night (Oct 17) to host, more than a year after he suffered near-fatal injuries in a deadly high-speed car accident.


Morgan, a “Saturday Night Live” cast member from 1999 to 2006 before he left to join “30 Rock,” the hit sitcom based on SNL, was joined by former co-stars including Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin, who returned to the NBC program in a show of support.

Morgan wasted no time in addressing his traumatic experience of June 2014, which killed his good friend, fellow comedian James McNair.

Watch the opening monologue:

Morgan suffered broken bones and a serious brain injury in a June 2014 highway accident in New Jersey that killed another passenger in the van, comedian “Jimmy Mack” McNair. A speeding Wal-mart truck driver who had been awake for 28 hours was held responsible for the accident.
