TRENTON, N.J. - The Wal-Mart truck driver from Jonesboro, Georgia, accused of triggering a crash in New Jersey that critically injured Tracy Morgan and killed another comedian had not slept for more than 24 hours. <br />
The information about 35-year-old Kevin Roper's lack of sleep is contained in a criminal complaint. <br />
A court administrator says Roper will face an initial court appearance on Wednesday. <br />
Roper has been charged with death by auto and four counts of assault by auto. <br />
Authorities say Roper apparently failed to slow for traffic early Saturday and swerved to avoid a crash. His rig smashed into the back of Morgan's Mercedes limo bus, killing comedian James ``Jimmy Mack'' McNair. <br />
Morgan's publicist says the 45-year-old actor and comedian remained in critical condition and was ``more responsive.''
