Tracy Morgan is showing "signs of improvement" after being critically injured in a car crash.

The 45-year-old 30 Rock comedian was involved in a six-car accident last weekend that took the life of comic James McNair.

Tracy suffered significant injuries but his representative has confirmed he is recuperating well.

"Today was a better day," his rep told Us Weekly in a statement issued on Thursday.

"While Tracy remains in critical, but stable, condition, he continues to show signs of improvement. His medical team remains optimistic that his recovery is progressing."

He broke his leg, femur, nose and a few ribs in the car accident in addition to sustaining other bodily trauma.

The star's fiancée Megan Wollover, who is also mother to his 11-month-old daughter Maven, has thanked fans once again for their support as Tracy recovers in hospital.

"[She] remains by his side and is relaying the countless good wishes and prayers that his family, friends and fans have been sending their way," the rep said.

Tracy was riding in a limousine on Saturday, June 7 in New Jersey when it was involved in a collision with a tractor trailer on a turnpike during the early hours of the morning.

At the time of the tragedy he was travelling with four others in the back of the limousine, including late comic James, who was sometimes known as Jimmy Mack, and fellow comics Ardie Fuqua and Harris Stanton.

The two passengers in the front of the vehicle were unhurt, as the tractor trailer smashed into the back of the limousine.
