Within hours of the accident, the driver whose truck overturned Morgan’s vehicle was charged with one count of vehicular homicide and three counts of injury by auto.
Comedian Tracy Morgan is back in the news, celebrating his newly regained mobility by walking himself down the aisle in his own wedding.
