Funnyman Tracy Morgan's estranged mother Alicia Warden has complained that she was not allowed to visit him at the hospital where he was admitted after an accident in New Jersey which killed one man and severely injured Morgan.

Warden alleged that she went to the hospital where the comedian is being treated, but was turned away by the hospital's guard and Morgan's fiancee, Megan Wollover. According to Warden, her son's fiancée had a thing against her. The mother, who has a strained relationship with Morgan, said she learnt of the accident, and her son's injury, only through TV news, reported TMZ online.

She tried again later and was allowed to stay with Morgan for only 5 minutes. Warden said her son was unconscious during the visit and there were some friends and a pastor in the room. "All I wanted was for our family to be alone with him. I wanted to pray over him and couldn't do that because so many people were in the room," she claimed.

A Wal-Mart truck driver named Kevin Roper has been charged with death by auto and four counts of assault by auto. According to a criminal complained filed, Roper had been awake for more than 24 hours before he hit Morgan's car and caused a chain reaction crash. He is scheduled to appear in court.
