traffic accident[edit]

On June 7, 2014, Morgan was a passenger in a Mercedes Sprinter bus involved in a six-vehicle accident in New Jersey. Just after 1:00 am EDT Saturday morning, the vehicle was traveling northbound on the New Jersey Turnpike near Cranbury, when it was struck from behind by a tractor-trailer operated by Walmart,[19] causing a chain reaction crash.[20][21] Morgan and three other comedians including Harris Stanton, along with Morgan's assistant and two limo company employees, had been returning from an engagement at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino inDover, Delaware, as part of Morgan's "Turn it Funny" stand-up comedy tour.[22] The crash killed Morgan's friend and collaborator, 62-year-old comedian James McNair.[19]

Morgan was taken by helicopter to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, New Jersey, with a broken leg and femur, broken nose, and several broken ribs, and underwent surgery on his leg on June 8.[23] In a 2015 interview with Today, Morgan stated that he was in a coma for roughly two weeks. On June 20, 2014, Morgan was released from the hospital and was transferred to a rehabilitation facility to continue recovering from the injuries sustained during the accident. He was released from the rehab center on July 12, 2014.[24]

The driver of the Walmart transport-truck, Kevin Roper of Jonesboro, Georgia, pleaded not guilty to one count of death by auto and four counts of assault by auto. The complaint alleges Roper dozed off and hit Morgan's limo after swerving to avoid slowed traffic ahead of him.[25] It also argues that Roper had been awake for more than 24 hours before the crash.[26] A preliminary investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board revealed that Roper had been on the clock since 11:20 Friday morning, and was very close to the federal limits of 14 hours per day and 11 hours behind the wheel.[27]

On July 10, Morgan sued Walmart for negligence. The suit alleged that Walmart either knew or should have known that Roper hadn't slept for more than 24 hours. The complaint alleged that before his shift, Walmart forced Roper to drive from his home in Jonesboro to a Walmart distribution center in Smyrna, Delaware—a distance of some 750 miles (1,210 km) over 11 hours—even though there were several other distribution centers within a much more reasonable driving distance. Morgan filed the suit on behalf of himself, Fuqua, Millea, and Millea's wife Krista. At the time of the accident, Krista Millea was eight months pregnant, and the suit charges that she suffered loss of consortium due to the injuries suffered by her husband.[21][28][29][30]In September 2014, it was reported that Walmart had blamed Morgan and the other victims' injuries on not wearing seatbelts, a claim both Morgan and his counsel fervently denied, noting that the driver that caused the crash had been charged with vehicular homicide and that the police report stated that seatbelts were not an issue in the case.[31]

In October 2014, Morgan's representative said the actor was still undergoing rehab and required a wheelchair when taking more than "some steps".[32] Newspaper photos showed him walking with the assistance of a cane outside his Cresskill, New Jersey home.[33] In November 2014, it was revealed during court proceedings that Morgan is still undergoing treatment fortraumatic brain injury, including daily speech, cognitive, vocational and physical therapies.[34] On May 27 2015, Walmart settled the lawsuit with an undisclosed amount.[35]

It's Mark Dice. He is doing a voice but he has no sense of humor and even if he did, if he were doing a parody it would be a parody of himself.
