Tracy Morgan on Forgiving the Truck Driver Who Caused His Near-Fatal Accident

"I'm not even mad at him no more"

It’s been more than one year since Tracy Morgan returned to the stage following the multi-car crash that temporarily put him in a coma in 2014. But while his recovery has been challenging, during Thursday’s episode of Conan, the 47-year-old comedian said he has forgiven the Walmart truck driver who caused the accident.

“I forgave him and I’m not even mad at him no more. But you know who is mad at him…my white neighbors: ‘If you wouldn’t have hit his a—, he wouldn’t be living next door to me!,'” he joked to O’Brien, referencing his move to a home in a new neighborhood.
