Tracy Morgan crash driver takes to Twitter

Jun 11 2014, 5:20am CDT | by

The driver involved in Tracy Morgan's car crash has issued a statement on Twitter.

Kevin Roper, the Walmart truck driver being blamed for the six-vehicle pile up on Saturday (06.07.14) which resulted in the '30 Rock' star being admitted to a New Jersey hospital in a critical condition, has expressed his condolences to the victims and refuted officers' claims the accident was caused by his lack of sleep in the hours before the collision.

The tragic crash killed comedian James McNair, who performed under the name Jimmy Mack, and comedians Ardie Fuqua and Harris Stanton were also among the injured.

Kevin posted on the social media site: "First off my prayers go out to all the families that were affected my prayers to the man that passed away during the accident (Mr McNair) i wish it was me and i can't express how horrible i feel.

"As for the accident i have some things to get off my chest that the media and police have neglected to report. First off i never said i was awake for 24 hours, not once did i say that to any law enforcement or media person.

"These are lies being spread because they are pressured to make an arrest as this accident was being covered 'NATIONALLY' because a famous person was involved. (sic)".

The driver went on to call the allegations "bulls**t" and believes they were fabricated because of the media interest in the case.

He raged: "Once again the accident was horrific and we lost a precious life, but please remember i was not drunk, high, (I was tested and passed) under any influence of any drug or alcohol, i had an 'ACCIDENT' which unfortunately occurred with a lot of media spotlight. If my ACCIDENT occurs with no media spotlight i am issued a few traffic tickets.

"The excuse of me being up 24 hours is complete BS! I was never charged at the scene of the accident because once again i was not guilty of any crime. Not until all the TV cameras came did the police all of a sudden make a determination i was up 24 hours (sounds good and sells papers) also covers their ass. So yes i am now most likely f**ked because i had an unfortunate ACCIDENT with the wrong car that night. (sic)".

Tracy, 45, was on his way home for a comedy show in Delaware when his limo bus was hit by the Walmart vehicle and overturned on the New Jersey Turnpike.
