*In a new Rolling Stone interview, Tracy Morgan says he considered suicide after the 2014 car accident that left him hospitalized and killed comedian James McNair.
The “30 Rock” star suffered a traumatic brain injury and multiple broken bones. He was in a coma for eight days and was blind for six days.
“My thoughts — I was in a very dark place,” he said. “I was sitting right here, contemplating suicide. I couldn’t walk.”
Morgan said he has struggled with guilt over surviving the accident, when his friend McNair did not.
“Emotionally, it’s hard for me to deal with,” he said. “I asked everybody to be there that night. I have to live with that. But I had to forgive myself. I know Jimmy would want it like that.”
Morgan, currently back on the road in a series of sold-out standup shows, said he came to realize that it simply wasn’t his time to go.
“I still have s**t here to do,” he said. “It’s gonna take more than 18 wheels for me to get out of here.”
