Tracy Morgan Rushed to Hospital at Sundance Film Festival

Andrew H. Walker/Getty Images(PARK CITY, Utah) -- Comedian and 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan was rushed to a hospital Sunday night after falling over during an awards ceremony at the Sundance Film Festival.

Morgan was attending the Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards in Park City, Utah, where he was being honored.  Sources told TMZ.com the former Saturday Night Live star "appeared extremely intoxicated during his award acceptance speech.”

Morgan was reportedly escorted outside by security personnel, and fell unconscious outside of the building.  Law enforcement sources stated that an ambulance was dispatched to the scene, TMZ.com reported.

The actor was brought to Park City Medical Center, ABC News confirmed.

Amy Roberts, a spokeswoman for Park City Medical Center, told TMZ no drugs or alcohol was found in Morgan’s system upon medical evaluation.

Morgan’s rep, Lewis Kay, also released a statement saying, “From a combination of exhaustion and altitude, Tracy is seeking medical attention … He is with his fiance and grateful to the Park City Medical Center for their care.  Any reports of Tracy consuming alcohol are 100 percent false.”

Actor Cuba Gooding, Jr. told ABC News, “he’s alright, he’s fine,” after consulting with friends of Morgan.
