TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Former "Saturday Night Live" star Tracy Morgan has been released from a rehabilitation facility as he heals from serious injuries he suffered in a car crash that left a fellow comedian dead, his spokesman said Saturday.

Morgan will continue his recovery at home with an "aggressive outpatient program," spokesman Lewis Kay said.

The former "30 Rock" star suffered a broken leg and broken ribs when the limousine van he was riding in was hit from behind June 7 by a Wal-Mart truck on the New Jersey Turnpike.

NEW YORK (AP) — In a story on July 11 about Amazon seeking permission from the Federal Aviation Administration to fly drones, The Associated Press misstated the year that Congress gave the FAA a deadline for granting drones access to U.S. skies.
