Six vehicles were involved, including one carrying the 45-year-old former Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock star.

One passenger died after the bus overturned on the New Jersey Turnpike early on Saturday, police said. Four are in hospital, three remain critical.

The BBC reports a lorry driver is facing criminal charges over the crash.

A spokesman for Tracy Morgan said he was in a critical condition but "receiving excellent care" at a hospital near the crash site.
