Video shows Tracy Morgan fighting with pedestrian at Times Square after almost hitting him with his Lamborghini
’30 Rock’ and ‘SNL’ star Tracy Morgan was in news lately for hitting a pedestrian at Times Square, New York City. The actor-comedian was driving in his red Lamborghini and a footage of the incident shows him arguing and animatedly gesturing at the man who was seen standing next to the sports car.
As reported recently, the witnesses who were present during the alleged accident saw Tracy Morgan trying to take a right turn at a green light, when he almost hit the said pedestrian on his foot.
This was followed by arguments and shouting from one to the other and witnesses also saw the man (who was hit) limping as he walked away.
Reports also say that the local police personnel who drove past the scene of crime, merely waved at the two of them.
This, however, is not the first time that Tracy Morgan has been in news for an accident.
In 2014, he was involved in a major car crash, which became fatal for the victims. Morgan and his fellow comedian friends James McNair, Harris Stanton and Ardie Fuqua were also with him in a Mercedes limousine bus at the time of the 2014 incident. A Walmart tractor-trailer had hit the vehicle and all three artists were hospitalized right after the crash. Morgan sustained critical injuries from the accident, while McNair lost his life.
Morgan later underwent treatment and time in rehab owing to the trauma and brain injuries from the fatal car crash.
This incident led Morgan to sue Walmart and was eventually there was a settlement from the corporate giant.
The latest Times Square incident comes after nearly six years of the previous accident which Morgan was involved in.
Last year, which marked five years of the major accident, Morgan recalled the incident and reflected on his social media with a post, missing his friend.
The Tweet, at that time said, "Five years ago tonight, me and my friends, Jimmy Mac, Jeff, @ARDIEFUQUA, @HarrisStanton, Ty, & Joceleyn were in a horrific accident.”
"There isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss my friend Jimmy Mac, who sadly lost his life that night. I love you Jimmy.I thank GOD for my family. I am eternally grateful for the love and support they give me.
"My wife, daughter, sons, and friends are what got me back on my feet. I live every day trying to do right by them and make the most of this second chance,” he continued in his post.
A few days before writing the tribute, Morgan had again gotten into a minor accident with his $2 million Buggati sports car that he had just picked up from the car dealership earlier that day.
