Comedian Tracy Morgan's condition was upgraded from critical to fair Monday, more than a week after he was severely hurt in a deadly car crash in New Jersey, his publicist said.

"Happy to pass along that Tracy has been upgraded to fair condition, which is a great improvement," publicist Lewis Kay said in a statement. "His personality is certainly starting to come back as well."

A Walmart truck driver pleaded not guilty last week to charges of vehicular homicide and assault in connection with the accident. His truck slammed into a limo bus carrying Morgan and his entourage, police said.

Morgan's mentor, James McNair, was killed. Three others, including Morgan, were critically injured.
