I just remember the impact and the vehicle going by, seeing a little bit of the Walmart truck by go. We didn't know which way was up, which way was down. Reporter: The limo driver kicking the window out to get help. I climbed around heard Tracy screaming for help but couldn't reach him and pull him. Reporter: 35-year-old roper rammed this into their limo. On their way back to New York from a stand-up comedy show in Delaware. Sor sources say it swerved but hit it causing it to lose control, slam into other cars and overturn. His longtime writing partner James McNair died at the scene.
