Tracy Morgan is currently in rehab, recovering from injuries, from a car accident that almost ended his life. The comedian is suing Walmart for the horrific car crash:
The lawsuit claims Wal-Mart was negligent when its truck driver crashed into Morgan’s limo bus on a New Jersey Turnpike on June 7. It alleges the truck’s automatic brakes were not functioning properly and mentions driver fatigue.
Comedian Ardley Fuqua and Jeffrey and Krista Millea, who were passengers in the limo, are also named as plaintiffs.
On the night of the accident, Morgan was on his way back to New York with friends after a standup performance at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino in Delaware. James “Jimmy Mack” McNair, 62, was declared dead at the scene.
The truck driver, Kevin Roper, pleaded not guilty to death by auto and assault by auto. He was released after posting $50,000 bail.
