NEW YORK/NEW BRUNSWICK, New Jersey (REUTERS) – A truck driver charged in the New Jersey crash that killed one man and critically injured comedian Tracy Morgan had not slept in more than 24 hours, according to a criminal complaint filed on Monday.

Morgan, best known for his roles on 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live, remained in critical condition but stable condition, recovering from a broken leg, ribs and nose, his spokesman Lewis Kay said in a statement on Monday.

“His fiancée Megan is by his side. This recovery will be arduous,” the statement said.

Two other passengers in the van were also in critical condition at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Center in New Brunswick, New Jersey, said spokeswoman Zenaida Mendez.
