NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — The truck driver charged in the fatal highway crash that also injured comedian Tracy Morgan and several other people has pleaded not guilty at an initial court appearance.

Kevin Roper appeared in state court in New Brunswick on Wednesday to face death by auto and assault by auto charges. A judge kept his bail at $50,000.

Roper was driving a Wal-Mart truck early Saturday when he allegedly swerved to avoid slowed traffic on the New Jersey Turnpike and plowed into Morgan's limo.

The 45-year-old Morgan suffered broken ribs and a broken leg. His friend and fellow comedian James McNair was killed, and two other passengers were seriously injured.
