Kevin Roper, who was behind the wheel of the tractor trailer which reportedly collided with the back of Morgan's vehicle during a horrific six-vehicle pile-up, has been charged.
The 30 Rock star was travelling back to his New Jersey home in the early hours of Saturday after a stand-up performance in Delaware when his limo bus was rear-ended and overturned.
Morgan remains in a critical condition in a New Jersey hospital, but his comedy writer friend James McNair was killed in the accident.
Two other motorists are also in intensive care, including Morgan's assistant Jeff Millea, while a third is reportedly in a 'fair' condition.
Roper's bail has been set at $50,000.
New Jersey State Police say two tractor trailers, two cars and one SUV were involved in the fatal accident, but the cause of the crash is still under investigation.
