It's not often that we can say we relate to the predicaments of celebrities, mostly because their personal lives seem so far removed from our own. But when news broke in June last year of the serious truck accident involving Tracy Morgan and several other comedians, this sentiment suddenly wasn't true anymore because the crash could have easily happened anywhere, which hit close to home for many, including some of our Upper Marlboro readers.
For those who didn't hear about the crash, it happened on June 7, 2014 on the New Jersey Turnpike when a Wal-Mart semi-truck violently rear ended a limousine carrying Morgan and several other comedians. The crash seriously injured Morgan and killed fellow comedian James McNair. It was a tragedy that left more questions than answers.
