The '30 Rock' star is left unable to close the door of his parked silver Jaguar after an unidentified bicyclist slammed into it when the comedian swung it open.
Tracy Morgan has a case of misfortune during a recent run-in with a deliveryman on a bike in New York City. According to New York Post's Page Six, the "Death at a Funeral" actor got involved in a minor car accident with the unidentified bicyclist at around 8:30 P.M. on Monday, April 2 night.
43-year-old Morgan, at the time, parked his silver Jaguar on Third Avenue on the Upper East Side as he waited for his trainer. It was when the comedian swung open his car's door that the cyclist slammed into it. The deliveryman wasn't seriously hurt and was taken to a hospital for X-rays, but the damaged door won't close and the actor has to wait for a tow-truck driver to fix the damage.
Talking about the incident with The Post's Kevin Sheehan, Morgan defended himself as saying, "I mean this guy was wearing all black." The Tracy Jordan of "30 Rock" added, "If you want to write a story about something, write a story about how these guys should wear lights or reflectors or something."
The former cast member of "Saturday Night Live" also noted that such accident is not something that is shocking for a native New Yorker. "This kind of stuff happens all the time in the city," he said. "I grew up in the city. I've been dealing with this stuff for years. Brooklyn-born and -raised, Bed-Stuy do or die."
