Morgan was returning from a stand-up gig when the accident occurred
Comedian Tracy Morgan says he has no recollection of the accident that left him with life-threatening injuries a year ago.
In his first interview since the collision, Morgan said he still suffered “headaches and nosebleeds” as a result of the collision.
And he choked back tears as he recalled the day he learned his friend, James “Jimmy Mack” McNair, had been killed.

A Wal-Mart truck crashed into the back of Morgan’s limo in June 2014.
He was left in a coma for two weeks, with a traumatic head injury, a broken leg, nose and ribs.
Prosecutors allege the driver had not slept for more than 24 hours. Morgan settled a legal case against Wal-Mart last week for an undisclosed sum.
The supermarket chain previously reached an agreement with the family of Mr McNair, 62, who grew up with Morgan in New York.
“I’m happy that Wal-Mart stepped up to the plate in a tremendous way, and they took full responsibility,” the 30 Rock star told Matt Lauer on NBC’s Today Show. “I’m happy they looked out for Jimmy Mack’s family.”
