American actor and comedian Tracy Morgan is in intensive care after the bus he was riding in was involved in a fatal multi-vehicle accident on the New Jersey Turnpike, police say.

Sergeant First Class Greg Williams said the vehicle carrying the 45-year-old former “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock” cast member and six others was involved in a six-vehicle accident on the turnpike near Cranbury Township at about 1am local time (3pm AET) on Saturday.

Williams says one person riding in the bus was killed. There was no immediate word on the condition of others involved in the accident.

A spokesman at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Centre in New Brunswick, New Jersey, said a patient named Tracy Morgan was in critical condition there.

Williams said two tractor-trailers, a sports utility vehicle and two cars, along with Morgan’s limo bus, were involved in the accident.

Morgan made headlines at last year’s Melbourne Comedy Festival when audience members walked out of his show claiming it was misogynistic.
