Actor and comedian Tracy Morgan is in critical condition after a six-vehicle crash on the New Jersey Turnpike.

The former "Saturday Night Live" and "30 Rock" star was riding in a limo bus with six other people at the time.

New Jersey State police say it happened around 1 a.m. in the Turnpike's northbound lanes, in Cranbury Township, south of New Brunswick.

State police say one other person riding in the bus was killed.

The accident also involved two tractor-trailers, a sport utility vehicle and two cars.

Morgan's publicist, Lewis Kay, released a statement Saturday morning.

"Tracy remains in critical condition at Robert Wood Johnson Hospital. He sustained these injuries in an accident that occurred early this morning as one of several passengers in a chauffeured SUV returning from a tour date in Delaware. His family is now with him and he is receiving excellent care. We don't anticipate much of a change in his condition today but will provide a further update once more information becomes available," Kay said in the statement.

Morgan did a stand up show at a casino in Delaware on Friday night and was scheduled for another show in North Carolina Saturday night.

That show has been cancelled.

The 45-year-old star was born in the Bronx and raised in Brooklyn.
