Tracy Morgan's lawyer says star is struggling after crash
Comedian's attorney says Morgan is fighting hard two months after accident
Actor Tracy Morgan is struggling more than two months after he was injured in a motor vehicle crash that left a fellow comedian dead.
His attorney, Benedict Morelli, told NBC's Today show Monday the former Saturday Night Live cast member is fighting hard.
Morgan suffered a broken leg and broken ribs when the limousine van he was riding in was hit from behind June 7 by a Wal-Mart truck on the New Jersey Turnpike.

Morelli has filed suit against Wal-Mart, claiming the retailer should have known the truck driver had driven 1,100 kilometers.
A criminal complaint alleges the 35-year-old driver, Kevin Roper, of Jonesboro, Georgia, hadn't slept for more than 24 hours before the accident. Wal-Mart has said it believes he was in compliance with federal safety regulations.
Roper has pleaded not guilty to death by auto and assault by auto charges.
