Kevin Roper, the truck driver who’s been charged in the deadly 6-vehicle crash that left Tracy Morgan badly hurt and fellow comedian James McNair dead, turned himself into authorities late Saturday.

He’s already been released after posting $50,000 bond.

Roper’s Walmart tractor-trailer collided with the limousine bus carrying Morgan, McNair and others at approximately 1 a.m. on Saturday on the New Jersey Turnpike as the group returned home from a show.

The bus was overturned, killing McNair and sending Morgan and other members of his entourage to the hospital with serious injuries.

Prosecutors in Middlesex County have charged Roper with one count of death by auto and four counts of assault by auto.

There’s been an outpouring of love and support for Morgan in the wake of the accident.
