Tracy Morgan Crash

The guy who crashed an 18 wheeler into Tracy Morgan's limo-bus turned himself in Saturday night after being charged with death by auto ... and he's already back out on the street.

35-year old Kevin Roper bonded out hours after being booked.

As we previously reported, Morgan was riding in a limo bus on the NJ Turnpike on his way home from a gig last night ... when it was rear-ended by an 18-wheeler and overturned.

One person died in the crash -- Jimmy Mack McNair, a comic who was a passenger in Tracy's limo.

Morgan is in critical condition but according to one unconfirmed report he's conscious.

A rep for Walmart says Kevin has been suspended pending the police investigation's outcome.

A limo-bus looks great on 1st sight , but it has totaly no safety zone for the passengers like a normal car

It's Tracy Morgan's fault this wreck entirely happened. Stop blaming it on the other driver.

Very sad. This guy is going to have to live with the fact that he killed someone and injured others... regardless of whether he gets convicted or not. I am not sure I could live with that guilt.

Don't get me wrong, I am a big fan of Tracy but I don't understand the charge. Accidents happen. People in cars who have accidents and people get killed don't get charges. Guess I don't have the whole story

Hey, how come no one is talking about this: his twitter page (that driver's) said this:

@Kevinmoneytalks

Georgia / 1800-Gambling


So he said "It's my road. Move, or get hit."

Does anybody know if Tracy's swelling went down overnight, if enough pressure was continually applied with the ice?

Someone should ask Tracy Morgan if he was wearing his seat belt and/or did he manage to not spill his drink?
