A multi-vehicle accident on the New Jersey Turnpike left at least one dead and several hospitalized early this morning, including actor and comedian Tracy Morgan, The Associated Press reports.

Two tractor-trailers, an SUV, two cars and Morgan's limo bus accounted for the six-car pileup, although officials said they did not yet know what caused the crash. A spokesman at a New Jersey hospital confirmed that a patient named Tracy Morgan was in critical condition there.

Morgan, 45, starred on the NBC comedy 30 Rock and spent several years as a performer on Saturday Night Live. A scheduled comedy performance in North Carolina tonight has been canceled.
