Tracy Morgan is suing Walmart over the deadly six-vehicle crash that left him in critical condition and killed his friend James McNair.
The 45-year-old was returning from a stand-up comedy gig on June 7, when the driver of a Walmart truck rear-ended the actor's limo bus, causing it to flip over.
Tracy suffered several broken ribs, a broken nose and broken leg in the New Jersey Turnpike accident.
The suit filed against the company blames the 30 Rock star's injuries on driver Kevin Roper's "negligence," which, according to a preliminary report by the National Transportation Safety Board, includes the 35-year-old driving 20 miles per hour over the speed limit.
Walmart responded with the following statement:
“This has been a terrible tragedy. We wish Mr. Morgan, Mr. Fuqua Jr., and Mr. Millea full recoveries. Our thoughts continue to go out to them, their families and friends, as well as to the families and friends of everyone involved, including Mr. McNair who lost his life. We are deeply sorry that one of our trucks was involved."
The company continued:
“As we’ve said, we’re cooperating fully in the ongoing investigation. We know it will take some time to resolve all of the remaining issues as a result of the accident, but we’re committed to doing the right thing for all involved.”
As for the status of Tracy's recovery, the comedian is now at home after spending three weeks in an undisclosed rehab facility.
“He's doing good. He's just resting,” his son, Tracy Jr., told the Daily News on Sunday, July 13.
