Tracy Morgan has been involved in another car crash.

The 50-year-old comedian left the scene in an ambulance after another driver traveling in a Honda CR-V smashed into his brand new Bugatti. The $2 million luxury whip was still adorned with dealer plates as the crash occurred in New York City on Tuesday, June 4, 2019.

Witness Chris Ricciardelli, 31, told the New York Post’s Page Six column: “He [Tracy] said he got it literally an hour ago and he paid $2 million for it. He just bought it, dude, and it’s pretty scraped up.”

It’s believed the driver, whose car was sporting New Jersey plates, tried to turn on 10th Avenue from the right lane around 1:30 pm when he plowed into Morgan.

It’s not known whether the former “30 Rock” star was injured in the crash.

The accident comes almost five years exactly since he was involved in a fatal car crash on the New Jersey Turnpike which killed his friend James “Jimmy” McNair and left him in a critical condition.

He miraculously got through the ordeal, but not without a fight, as he spent eight days in a coma before waking up to learn he had gone blind — a condition that lasted six days — was suffering from a traumatic brain injury and had a broken leg.

He previously told Rolling Stone magazine: “I thought I was going to die for a long time. My thoughts — I was in a very dark place. I was sitting right here, contemplating suicide. I couldn’t walk. Emotionally, it’s hard for me to deal with.”

He also battled feelings of guilt and regret that Jimmy had sadly died, which led to him seeking months of psychiatric help.

Tracy said: “I don’t think I cheated death. I think this was the plan. My room wasn’t ready.”
