WATCH TRACY MORGAN’S EMOTIONAL FIRST INTERVIEW SINCE HIS TRAGIC ACCIDENT
Monday, Jun 1, 2015

Actor and comedian Tracy Morgan has had a very trying and emotional past 12 months following a tragic car accident in which a Walmart big rig truck slammed into Tracy’s limo on the New Jersey turnpike, putting Tracy in a coma and killing his friend and fellow comedian James McNair on June 7, 2014.

Now nearly a year later, Tracy sat down with Matt Lauer for his first interview since the accident and tried to convey his thoughts as he fought back tears.

“I love, I’ll never stop loving her,” Tracy said about comedy. “I love comedy and I can’t wait to get back to her. But right now, my goal is just to heal and get better.”

And while his own struggle to heal has been a long and difficult road, Tracy is grateful that the lawsuits with Walmart are settled and his friend can now rest in peace.

“They [Walmart] took full responsibility,” Tracy said. “I’m just really happy that they looked out for Jimmy Mack’s family. I know my friend can rest in peace now.”

Tracy also thanked some very important people at JFK Medical Center who helped him to recover, especially the very special “Nurse Jackie.”

“Nurse Jackie, when I first came out of the coma, I was a mess. I would curse her out every day. I would throw things at her,” Tracy said.

“The only thing she would say to me is, ‘Everything is going to be all right.’”
