Tracy Morgan has been involved in a car accident with his brand new $2 million 2012 Bugatti Veyron — an accident that took place days before the five-year anniversary of the severe accident that nearly took the comedian’s life.
After Tuesday’s accident, Morgan tweeted that he was not badly injured.
“Thanks for any concern but I am totally fine. My NEW CAR? We shall see. Love you all,” Morgan tweeted.
The New York Post cited police and witnesses who stated that around 1:30 p.m. in crowded midtown Manhattan, a woman in a late-model Honda CR-V tried to make a right turn from the left lane and smacked into Morgan’s new luxury car.
Thanks for any concern but I am totally fine. My NEW CAR? We shall see. Love you all.
“He said he got it literally an hour ago and he paid $2 million for it,” witness Chris Ricciardelli, 31, told The Post. “He just bought it, dude, and it’s pretty scraped up. It still had a dealer tag.”
TMZ posted video of Morgan standing outside the crashed convertible, which still has dealer plates, along with pictures of the accident. Additional video shows Morgan slowly driving from Manhattan Motorcars lot with the car minutes before the crash.
Bugatti Veyrons can sell for $3 million, preowned for $2 million, according to a representative from Manhattan Motorcars who declined to comment on Tuesday’s incident.

Morgan’s press representative declined to comment to USA TODAY.
The accident comes nearly five years to the day of the near-fatal accident Morgan was involved in on June 7, 2014, on the New Jersey Turnpike. A Walmart truck driver rear-ended Morgan’s limo bus, killing his friend and mentor, comedian James “Jimmy Mac” McNair.
Morgan suffered broken leg bones, a broken nose and several broken ribs in the crash that sent him to intensive care.
