(Newser) – Comedian Tracy Morgan was involved in a minor traffic crash while driving his 2019 Bugatti in midtown Manhattan, the AP reports. Police say the fender bender happened Tuesday afternoon near Tenth Avenue and 42nd Street and that it involved the 50-year-old Morgan and his white Bugatti, reportedly worth around $2 million, and a 61-year-old driver of a Honda CR-V. A representative for Morgan says the comedian bought the vehicle an hour before the minor crash. Police say both vehicles sustained minor damage and all parties refused medical attention, although photos of the scene show Morgan sitting in an ambulance.

Per witness accounts and other information cited by TMZ and Page Six, it appears the CR-V may have sideswiped the Bugatti as the Honda driver tried to make a right turn from the left lane. "Thanks for any concern but I am totally fine," Morgan tweeted. "My NEW CAR? We shall see. Love you all." (Read more Tracy Morgan stories.)
