HOUSTON -- Comedian and actor Tracy Morgan has canceled an upcoming performance in Houston due to injuries suffered during a multi-vehicle accident on the New Jersey Turnpike.

The 45-year-old former "Saturday Night Live" star suffered broken ribs and a broken leg in the June 7 crash on the New Jersey Turnpike. The crash killed fellow comedian James McNair and seriously injured two other people.

Morgan’s comedy tour was was scheduled to make a stop at the House of Blues on Thursday, June 26. No new date has been scheduled. Ticket refunds are available at place of purchase.

Spokesman Lewis Kay said Monday that Morgan's personality is also coming back.

Prosecutors say Wal-Mart driver Kevin Roper's truck hit Morgan's limo. The Georgia resident has pleaded not guilty to death by auto and assault by auto charges.

Kay says Morgan's assistant Jeffrey Millea has also been upgraded to fair condition. Hospital officials say comedian Ardie Fuqua remains in critical condition.
