Early in the morning on June 7, 2014, a Walmart truck driver crashed into a limo bus carrying Morgan and his fellow comedians on the New Jersey Turnpike, leaving him with a traumatic brain injury and killing his friend, comedian James McNair. "Five years ago tonight, me and my friends, Jimmy Mac, Jeff, @ARDIEFUQUA, @HarrisStanton, Ty, & Joceleyn were in a horrific accident," Morgan tweeted. "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. I am emotional right now so bear with me but I also have to thank my professional family. The folks at @TBSNetwork who got me back doing what I love to do best, entertaining people. MY YODA, Lorne Michaels. Going back to @nbcsnl was the first time I knew I would be ok." Morgan concluded his tweets with: "Love you all!! God Bless and please spread love and kindness to one another."
