Tracy Morgan, the former Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock star, was injured in a six-car accident early on Saturday, Sgt. Gregory Williams of the New Jersey State Police says.

The accident, Williams said, happened at about 1 a.m. ET., near Trenton.

CNN reports Morgan is in "critical" condition, while USA Today reports the actor and comedian is in "intensive care."

Morgan was scheduled to perform a stand up gig at a Delaware Casino. NBC Philadelphia reports Morgan was in a "limo bus" with five other passengers.

"State police say a preliminary investigation has found that a tractor trailer came up upon slow moving traffic and caused the crash," NBC Philadelphia reports.
