The Pulse: Tracy Morgan Injured In Accident

Tracy Morgan is in critical condition after being involved in a multiple-car crash; and Maya Angelou is remembered at a funeral ceremony. This is Saturday's edition of "The Pulse."

Funny man and former 'Saturday Night Live' star Tracy Morgan has a serious fight ahead of him. Morgan was critically injured in a six-vehicle crash on the way home from a tour date in Delaware Saturday morning. Prosecutors have charged 35-year-old Kevin Roper of Georgia with one count of 'death by auto' and four counts of 'assault by auto.' Roper was driving a Walmart truck when officials say he swerved into a limousine van carrying Tracy Morgan and at least four others. That set off a chain reaction involving a total of six vehicles and closed down the New Jersey Turnpike for nearly five hours.

Frightening moments at the U.S. Capitol Saturday morning after staff and visitors were evacuated from the building. It happened after a small place entered restricted airspace over Washington, D.C. And the capitol was evacuated after authorities were not able to make contact with the pilot. The aircraft safely left the restricted airspace. The FAA is investigating the incident. About half an hour later, everyone was allowed back inside.

The world is mourning the loss of beloved poet Maya Angelou, who died on May 28th. Saturday morning, loved ones, admirers, and celebrities like Oprah and former President Bill Clinton and First Lady Michelle Obama gathered in Winston-Salem, N.C., to honor her life and her achievements. The message mourners took away from her memorial service was that though she may no longer be present in body, her soul lives on in every word she left behind.
