Comedian Tracy Morgan was involved in another car crash Tuesday afternoon after his new Bugatti supercar was side-swiped by a motorist in Manhattan, causing him to be driven away from the scene in an ambulance.
The nasty incident occurred just three days shy of the five year anniversary of Morgan’s fatal 2014 horror smash, when a sleep-deprived driver of a Walmart truck collided with his chauffeured limousine, killing his friend and leaving the now 50-year-old profoundly injured.
The driver of a Honda CR-V with New Jersey license plates reportedly attempted to make a left turn from the right-hand lane on 10th Avenue and 57th street at 1:30pm, scraping into the left-side of Morgan’s 2012 Bugatti Veyron.
According to witnesses, Morgan remarked at the scene how he had just paid $2 million for the white convertible at Manhattan Motorcars.
TMZ reported that he’d driven it out of the lot for the first time just 15 minutes earlier.
Following the collision, Morgan complained to attending paramedics of a pain in his hip. He was then escorted into the back of an ambulance and whisked away to a near-by hospital.
Pictures from the scene shows Morgan noticeably shaken-up but communicating with police, paramedics and the driver of the Honda.
However, he took to Twitter shortly afterwards to assure fans he was ‘totally fine’.
‘Thanks for any concern but I am totally fine. My NEW CAR? We shall see. Love you all,’ Morgan wrote.
The ’30 Rock’ star’s carbon fiber Bugatti suffered a number of bumps and scrapes but no significant damage, as determined from pictures at the scene.
Any lasting imperfections are likely to cost Morgan a hefty bounty. The car is already back in the shop where engineers are said to be working to price up potential repairs.
Morgan was not ticketed for the crash, according to law enforcement.
The 50-year-old made his spectacular return to television for the first time in three years last March in the TBS show, The Last OG.
Speaking ahead of the premier, he said: ‘I know why God spared my life that day in that accident,’ he said. ‘It was to bring love and to bring hope.
‘Forget the 49 years of my life, let’s think about the last three. The accident was three years ago, and am I a better man now than I was? The answer is yes!’
The 30 Rock star was in a coma for two weeks and suffered a ‘traumatic brain injury’ after his car was struck by a Walmart truck driver who hadn’t slept for more than 24 hours.
Morgan also suffered a broken leg, nose, and ribs in the crash, which killed his friend and comedian James McNair.
In an interview, fellow comedian and close friend of Morgan, Damon Wayans, revealed the star received a $90 million settlement from Walmart after the crash.
Wayans blurted out the figure while discussing the challenges some comedians face staying relevant to their audiences when they become wealthy.
‘There is a certain point as a comedian you have to be everyman… like, Tracy Morgan right now got $90 million, so when he gets on stage, people got 90 million things on their mind besides his comedy,’ Wayans told the hosts of the radio show The Breakfast Club.
