Tracy Morgan is out of the hospital and into a rehabilitation center, his publicist announced today. The comedian is expected to stay at the undisclosed facility "for the next few weeks," the rep says, following the deadly traffic accident Morgan was in on June 7. "While he is continuing to show signs of improvement, he still has a long way to go," the rep adds, according to CNN. Yesterday, NTSB investigators revealed that the truck that rear-ended Morgan's limo, killing comedian James McNair, was going 65mph in a 45mph zone, despite a sign warning that lanes were closed ahead.
