Tracy Morgan marries a year after near-fatal car crash

SO GRATEFUL: Tracy with new wife, Megan

COMEDIAN TRACY Morgan married longtime fiancee Megan Wollover in New Jersey yesterday (Aug 23).

Their nuptials come one year after Morgan was in a horrific highway crash that left him fighting for his life after a Walmart tractor-trailer slammed into his limousine in New Jersey.

Family members, friends, and the couple's two-year-old daughter Maven were in attendance as Morgan, 46, and Wollover, 28, wed.

“After almost losing Tracy last year, I am so grateful to finally be married to the love of my life,” Wollover told People.

“We have been through so much and our love is stronger for it,” she added.

The 30 Rock star and other people injured in a fatal crash with a Wal-Mart truck reached an out-of-court settlement with the world’s largest retail giant.

Following the crash in June 2014, which claimed the life of Comedian James McNair, known as Jimmy Mack, Morgan has had to learn to walk, sit and stand again.

Morgan was able to walk down the aisle unaided after a four-year engagement.

“I don't want to walk my wife down the aisle with a cane or in a wheelchair,” he told People in June. “So I had to go hard with the therapy… I had to get better. There was no ifs, ands or buts about it.”

His wedding comes just weeks after NBC announced that the longtime Saturday Night Live (SNL) cast member would headline the third episode of Season 41 airing October 17.
