Comedian Tracy Morgan is still in critical condition after a truck collided with his limo bus on the New Jersey turnpike early Saturday morning, killing one person and injuring four. But there is some good news, Morgan's fiancée Megan Wollover said through a spokesperson: The rumors that the actor would lose a leg are totally bogus.
Morgan's leg was broken in the crash, but it's not going to be amputated. The rumor appears to have started with a source inside Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital who leaked information about it to Mediatakeout.
The source later claimed Morgan had lost feeling in the leg, but opted for physical therapy and surgery over amputation. Morgan's family didn't address that report specifically, but did refer to the media "speculating (mostly inaccurately)" on his condition.
Here's the full statement:
Tracy remains in critical but stable condition. His fiancee Megan is by his side. The concern for his well-being has been overwhelming, but Megan is respectfully asking that the media await official word through these channels before speculating (mostly inaccurately) on his condition, Rumors about amputating his leg are completely fabricated.
As we shared yesterday. Tracy had surgery on his broken leg. We are working closely with the incredible staff at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital to share information when it is available, This recovery will be arduous and we hope that you can be patient during this difficult time. Thank you.
