NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) - Actor and comedian Tracy Morgan has been upgraded to fair condition following the New Jersey highway crash that badly injured him and killed one of his friends.

Spokesman Lewis Kay said Monday that Morgan's personality is also coming back.

The 45-year-old former "Saturday Night Live" star suffered broken ribs and a broken leg in the June 7 crash on the New Jersey Turnpike. The crash killed fellow comedian James McNair and seriously injured two other people.

Prosecutors say Wal-Mart driver Kevin Roper's truck hit Morgan's limo. The Georgia resident has pleaded not guilty to death by auto and assault by auto charges.

Kay says Morgan's assistant Jeffrey Millea has also been upgraded to fair condition. Hospital officials say comedian Ardie Fuqua remains in critical condition.
