“Looks like one of the tractor-trailers may have rear-ended that limo bus, but that’s preliminary at this time.”​

One person was killed — believed to have been a passenger in the limo bus — while seven others were hospitalized with injuries.

The 45-year-old actor and father of four remains in Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital as one of at least three in critical condition.
