Nearly five years after the crash that left him in intensive careTracy Morgan has been involved in another car collision.

On Tuesday afternoon, a woman driving a Honda CR-V supposedly attempted to make a right turn from a left-turn lane and accidentally drove into the side of Morgan’s new Bugatti, according to USA Today.

Morgan, 50, had reportedly bought the pre-owned 2012 model sports car — a Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport — only an hour prior to the incident.

Page Six reported that in an interview with the New York Post, a witness claimed, “He said he got it literally an hour ago and he paid $2 million for it. He just bought it and it’s pretty scraped up. It still had a dealer tag.”

Morgan took to Twitter a couple of hours after the accident assuring fans that he was fine. “Thanks for any concern,” he wrote, “but I am totally fine.”

“My new car?” he continued. “We shall see. Love you all.”

TMZ later shared pictures of the damage made to the luxury car along with a video which depicted the scene of the incident and a very frustrated Morgan.

While the damages to the car may be expensive to fix, they were fortunately very minimal, with only a few scratches on the front left wheel rim.
