According to investigators...
TMZ reports that a new report from the National Transportation Safety Board says Kevin Roper, the truck driver who hit Tracy Morgan's limo bus, was traveling at over twenty miles above the speed limit. He was allegedly driving 65 MPH in an area that had a speed limit of 45 MPH due to construction. Even without the construction, the normal limit is 55 MPH.
Roper's tractor-trailer hit Morgan's vehicle on June 7 on the New Jersey Turnpike. He pleaded not guilty to charges of death by automobile. Morgan is in the hospital with multiple injuries and is in fair condition. 65-year-old comedian James McNair was killed in the accident.
