The NTSB says that the truck driver that caused the deadly crash nearly two weeks ago that left Tracy Morgan in critical condition was speeding in a construction zone. The investigation found that Kevin Roper was speeding at 20 mph over posted construction zone speed limit.
Roper was doing 65 in a 45 mph zone just 60 seconds before smashing into the limo bus that was carrying Tracy Morgan and several other comedians. Comedy writer and dear friend to Tracy Morgan, James “Jimmy Mac” McNair was killed and several others were badly injured.
Roper faces vehicular homicide charges.
