TRENTON, N.J. - Tracy Morgan is expected to remain hospitalized for several weeks following surgery on a broken leg suffered in a crash on the New Jersey Turnpike that left two others critically injured and another man dead.

The 45-year-old actor and comedian, a former "Saturday Night Live" and "30 Rock" cast member, was in critical condition early Monday. Morgan's spokesman, Lewis Kay, says Morgan was "more responsive" on Sunday following the surgery.

A Wal-Mart truck driver from Georgia has been charged with death by auto and four counts of assault by auto. Authorities say 35-year-old Kevin Roper apparently failed to slow for traffic ahead early Saturday in New Jersey and swerved to avoid a crash. His rig smashed into the back of Morgan's Mercedes limo bus, killing comedian James "Jimmy Mack" McNair.
