Funnyman Tracy Morgan has returned to “Saturday Night Live” a year after he suffered near-fatal injuries in a deadly high-speed car accident.
Morgan, 46, a cast member on the show from 1999 to 2006 before he left to join “30 Rock”, was joined by former co-stars including Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin, who returned to the NBC program in a show of support, reported Guardian online.
Morgan wasted no time in addressing his traumatic experience of June 2014, which killed his good friend, fellow comedian James McNair.
“It was awful… But it also showed me how much love and support I have… And here I am,” he said.
He then launched into a sketch set at “30 Rock” when his character almost dies. Fey and Baldwin joined the bit.
The comedian suffered broken bones and a serious brain injury in the accident in New Jersey. A speeding Wal-mart truck driver who had been awake for 28 hours was held responsible for the accident.
