The 45-year-old actor, who is well known as a cast member on Saturday Night Live and for his role as Tracy Jordan on the television series 30 Rock, was in a limousine when the six-vehicle car crash occurred at the New Jersey Turnpike's northbound I-95 lanes near Cranbury Township.

The accident killed James McNair, a comedian better known by his stage name Jimmy Mack, who often performed with Morgan.
