Comedian Tracy Morgan was in a car accident in NYC on Tuesday, nearly five years after the crash that almost killed him.
TMZ reports Morgan had just purchased a $2-million Bugatti Veyron at Manhattan Motorcars when a Honda SUV sideswiped him.
Witness Chris Ricciardelli told Page Six, “He said he got it literally an hour ago and he paid $2 million for it. He just bought it… and it’s pretty scraped up.”
Ricciardelli added, “His left hip was hurting him.”
Tracy was treated by paramedics on the scene, and assured everyone he was okay, writing on Twitter, “Thanks for any concern but I am totally fine. My NEW CAR? We shall see. Love you all.”

On June 7, 2014, Morgan was in a car accident that killed his friend James “Jimmy Mack” McNair.
Morgan, McNair, Ardie Fuqua, Harris Stanton and three others were riding in a Mercedes limo when they were hit by a Walmart tractor-trailer. The limo overturned and crashed into several other vehicles.
Tracy suffered a traumatic brain injury, a broken leg, and broken ribs.
After the wreck, Tracy told “Extra” that Eddie Murphy was there for him as he recovered. "I spoke to Eddie when I came out the coma. Eddie was the first one to make me laugh." Watch.
