Comedian Tracy Morgan was upgraded to fair condition Monday following the New Jersey highway crash that killed a fellow comedian.

Morgan's representatives confirmed his condition was upgraded. They also said his assistant Jeffrey Millea was also upgraded to fair condition. Comedian Ardie Fuqua remains in critical condition.

The three were injured in a crash on the New Jersey Turnpike June 7. The crash killed fellow comedian James McNair.

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

A criminal complaint alleges Roper hadn't slept for more than 24 hours before the accident when he swerved to avoid slowed traffic on the turnpike and plowed into Morgan's limo.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
