    (CNN) -- A six-car accident left actor Tracy Morgan in critical condition in New Jersey early Saturday, authorities said.

    The former "Saturday Night Live" cast member and "30 Rock" star was riding in a limo bus when the accident occurred in Mercer County, said Sgt. Gregory William of New Jersey State Police.

    In addition to the bus, the wreck involved two tractor-trailers and an SUV, he said. He did not provide specifics on what happened.

    One person was killed and four others hospitalized with injuries, authorities said.

    Peter Haigney, a spokesman for the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, said four patients are getting treated at the hospital.

    Three are in critical condition while one is in fair condition, he said.

    The hospital said that a man named Tracy Morgan was among those in critical condition, but citing privacy laws, declined to confirm it is the actor. State police confirmed his identity to CNN.

    Morgan performed Friday night at the Dover Downs Hotel and Casino in Dover, Delaware, the venue said.

    (CNN) - A Georgia truck driver has been charged in connection with the wreck on the New Jersey Turnpike that left comedian-actor Tracy Morgan in critical condition and another man dead, the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office said in a statement released Saturday.

    Morgan's condition was not expected to change Saturday, publicist Lewis Kay said. "His family is now with him and he is receiving excellent care."

    Morgan, 45, was a regular on "Saturday Night Live" for seven years and received an Emmy nomination for his role on "30 Rock," in which he played Tracy Jordan, an exaggerated version of himself.

    The wreck occurred at about 1 a.m. ET on Saturday on the turnpike in Mercer County, said Sgt. Gregory Williams of New Jersey State Police.

    "NJSP says the driver of the tractor-trailer failed to observe slow-moving traffic ahead," Williams said. "At the last minute, he swerved to try and avoid the Mercedes limo bus but struck it from behind, forcing the limo to rotate and overturn."

    A limo passenger, 63-year-old James McNair of Peekshill, New York, was killed and three people besides Morgan were taken to the hospital, authorities said.

    McNair was a comedian who performed under the name Jimmy Mack, said his sister, Valerie Daniel. "He spoke very highly of Tracy," she told CNN. "They go way back."
