Web Catch: 1 year after deadly crash, actor Tracy Morgan speaks out

Author:

In his first interview since the deadly crash that nearly claimed his life, Tracy Morgan spoke of the recent ups and downs on the TODAY show Monday morning.

Morgan was one of several passengers traveling in a limousine that was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer in June 2014. The aftermath left Morgan in critical condition and injured four others. One man – Morgan's close friend and comedian James McNair – was killed in the crash.

"Bones heal, but the loss of my friend will never heal," an emotional Morgan began. "He was a loving man, and he was a warm man. He was a good man. It's just hard for me to see that he's gone."

Morgan admits to the struggles of daily living, ranging from emotional to physical. Still, the "30 Rock" star is optimistic he will make a return to comedy.

"I love comedy. I'll never stop loving her. I love comedy and I can't wait to get back to her, but right now my goal is just to heal and get better," he said. "And when I'm there, you'll know it."
