Tracy Morgan breaks down in his first interview since his fatal crash!
“The case is settled, but the pain is always going to be there for Jimmy Mac” Morgan said as he broke down in tears this morning while he described the pain of the car accident that took his best friend’s life last June.
Morgan sat down with Matt Lauer on “TODAY” as he described the torment of the crash while breaking down in tears several times.
Morgan told Lauer it wasn’t until two weeks after he came out of his coma to learn his fellow comedian and friend, James McNair, lost his life in the crash
When I got home, it really hit me,” he said. “Every day I would just watch the accident on YouTube. One day I saw (McNair’s) funeral on YouTube, and I lost it for about a week”.
Last week, Walmart settled a lawsuit filed by Morgan over the crash. Morgan reified, expressed his gratitude by stating “Walmart stepped up to the plate in a tremendous way. They took full responsibility”.
The former 30 Rock star, said he expects to return to the comedy scene, but he still has a lot of work before he gets to that point.
