(CNN) — Actor Tracy Morgan is in critical condition after a six-vehicle accident in New Jersey early Saturday, authorities said.
The former “Saturday Night Live” cast member and “30 Rock” star was riding in a limo bus when the accident occurred in Mercer County, said Sgt. Gregory Williams of the New Jersey State Police.
The limo bus overturned at the New Jersey Turnpike in Robbinsville, he said. “The limo bus is the only vehicle that overturned,” Williams said. “Looks like one of the tractor-trailers may have rear-ended that limo bus, but that’s preliminary at this time.”
Williams said he does not believe alcohol played a role in the accident, but that is under investigation.
In addition to the bus, the wreck involved two tractor-trailers and an SUV, he said.
One person was killed and seven others hospitalized with injuries, authorities said.
Police identified the man who was killed as James McNair, 63, of Peekskill, New York. McNair was a passenger in the limo bus.
Peter Haigney, a spokesman for the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, said four patients are
being treated there.
