'30 Rock' Star Makes Strides Toward Recovery

Tracy Morgan walked unassisted one year after car crash

After a devastating car accident last summer, Tracy Morgan continues to recover.

The 46-year-old actor and comedian, known for performances on TV shows like "Saturday Night Live" and "30 Rock," is showing progress in his recovery.

In June of 2014, Tracy Morgan was left in critical condition after a Wal-Mart truck crashed into his limousine on the New Jersey turnpike. The crash caused traumatic injury to his brain and broke several of his ribs, as well as his nose and his leg.

Despite the fact that Morgan was listed as being in critical condition just one year ago, he was recently photographed walking without the assistance of a cane or handler.

"I want to walk my wife down the aisle," he said to People Magazine in a recent interview. "I am determined to play with my little daughter and chase her around."

According to the Mayo Clinic, many people who have experienced severe brain trauma can have problems with living independently due to the increased difficulty with movement, thinking, memory and language that often result. They can also experience a loss of coordination and weakness or numbness in their fingers and toes.

Morgan recently told People that he feels as though his health is "at 75 percent" of what it was before the accident. When discussing his recovery, the comedian traded a punchline for succinct optimism, saying simply: "I have a lot to look forward to."

If Morgan's current progress is any indication, his fans and supporters may have a lot to look forward to, as well.
