In June 2014, actor Tracy Morgan was involved in a horrific car crash that left him in critical condition. Over a year later, the Saturday Night Live veteran is just thankful to be alive. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Morgan opened up about the life-changing crash, thanking his wife along the way for the continuous support.

On June 7, 2014, a Walmart tractor-trailer rear-ended the limo bus Morgan was riding in, along with six other passengers, in Cranbury Township on the New Jersey Turnpike. The impact of the crash left the 47-year-old comedian with a significant brain injury and several broken bones, while his friend and fellow comedian, James McNair, died in the collision.

This October, Morgan surprised fans everywhere when he made his return to the SNL stage walking and talking on his own. He is also currently starring in a national commercial for the popular sportswear and footwear retailer Foot Locker.

"I remember this time last year I was in a wheelchair wondering if I was gonna walk again," Morgan told ET. "Now I'm doing a Foot Locker commercial."

The 30 Rock star endured months of physical rehabilitation therapy, which included re-learning how to walk. Morgan admitted a lot of the strength he embodied to fight through recovery came from the love and support of his wife, Megan Wollover, and their daughter Maven Sonae.

He was determined to meet her at the altar without any assistance of a cane or wheelchair for on their big day and his wish came true. On Sunday, Aug. 23, 2014, the two wed in an intimate ceremony in front of family and friends. Wollover has stayed by his side every step of the way.

"She was my rock. [She] still is. She was right there telling me, 'Don't worry about it.' All she kept saying was, 'I love you,' and, 'Don't worry about it, you're gonna be better than ever,'" Morgan told ET.

Morgan is happy to be back on stage doing the thing he loves most: making people laugh. He dedicated his recovery to his loyal fans.

"The things that worried me and that were important before, aren't so important now," Morgan said. "When you spend weeks in comas then you hear and see things differently. But I see life differently. I embrace it more."

His Foot Locker commercial is part of Foot Locker's "Week of Greatness" campaign, which featured athletes like John Cena, James Harden, Derrick Rose, Tim Duncan and Victor Cruz in the past.
