State police say actor and comedian Tracy Morgan is in intensive care after the limousine bus in which he was riding in was involved in a multi-vehicle accident on the New Jersey Turnpike.

Sgt. First Class Greg Williams tells The Associated Press that the vehicle carrying the 45-year-old former Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock cast member and six others was involved in a six-vehicle accident on the turnpike near Cranbury Township around 1 a.m. ET Saturday.

A spokesman at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Center in New Brunswick, New Jersey, says a patient named Tracy Morgan is in critical condition there.

Williams says one person riding in the bus was killed. There was no immediate word on the condition of others involved in the accident.

Williams says two tractor-trailers, a sports utility vehicle and two cars, along with Morgan's limo bus, were involved in the accident.

Police believe a truck rear ended the limousine-style bus that Morgan was riding in, ABC News reports.

Morgan joined Saturday Night Live in 1996 and was on the sketch-comedy program for seven years before leaving to star in The Tracy Morgan Show in 2003. That show lasted just one season. In 2006, Morgan found a long-running role in NBC's hit show 30 Rock, which was created by SNL co-star Tina Fey.
