Driver in crash that injured Morgan wants charges tossed

The truck driver who slammed into a limousine carrying comedian Tracy Morgan last year plans to ask a New Jersey judge to throw out criminal charges against him, saying he can't get a fair trial.

Kevin Roper was driving a Wal-Mart truck in June 2014 when he crashed into Morgan's limo van. The former "30 Rock" and "Saturday Night Live" star and others suffered serious injuries. His friend James McNair was killed.

Roper was charged in state court with crimes including death by auto.

Attorney David Glassman said Friday that he would ask a judge on Tuesday to dismiss the case because Roper can't get a fair trial.

Glassman contends Roper received a "tsunami" of negative publicity.
