Tracy Morgan Is Released From the Hospital

Tracy Morgan has been released from the hospital.

The comedian, who was involved in a fatal car crash June 7, has been transferred to an undisclosed rehab center, where he will stay for the next few weeks, according to his publicist.

"While he is continuing to show signs of improvement, he still has a long way to go," his rep said in a statement. "He and [his fiance] Megan wanted to publicly express their deepest gratitude to everyone at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital for the unbelievable care and attention they provided him."

There has been no update about comedian Ardie Fuqua, who was also in critical condition after the crash. Comedian James McNair died.

Meanwhile, the Walmart truck driver accused of causing the crash, Kevin Roper, has been charged with vehicular homicide. He has pleaded not guilty and is free on bail.
