NEWARK New Jersey (Reuters) - The actor and comedian Tracy Morgan was seriously injured when his limo bus overturned in a road accident involving multiple vehicles in New Jersey early on Saturday morning, police said.

Morgan, best known for his roles on "Saturday Night Live" and "30 Rock," was taken by helicopter to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Center in New Brunswick, New Jersey, in critical condition, said Gregory Williams, a New Jersey State Police spokesman.

Another passenger on the limo bus was killed in the accident when two tractor-trailers and three other vehicles crashed at around 1 a.m. on Saturday morning on the New Jersey Turnpike turnpike near Cranberry Township, Williams said.

Six other people besides Morgan were injured, Williams said.

A hospital spokeswoman referred queries to Morgan's publicist, who did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
