Walmart: Settlement Reached With Family of Comedian Killed in Tracy Morgan Car Crash


According to The Associated Press, Walmart has reached a wrongful death settlement with  the family of a comedian killed in the New Jersey Turnpike crash that seriously injured Tracy Morgan last summer.

Walmart and the estate of James McNair settled out-of-court. The settlement is the first since the June 7 crash where a Wal-Mart truck ran into the limo that carried Morgan and others home from a show in Delaware.

Morgan, the former “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock” star, suffered a traumatic brain injury in the accident, according to his lawyer. Criminal charges against truck driver Kevin Roper are pending in state court in New Jersey.

Morgan and McNair, 62, grew up together in Brooklyn and he was a friend and mentor to Morgan over the years.

The terms of the settlement are confidential, but McNair’s family attorney Daryl Zaslow told The Associated Press that they were pleased with the outcome.

Wal-Mart “caused extensive damage” to the family but accepted responsibility and “more than stepped up to the plate and took care of this family,” Zaslow said.

“Ultimately they did the right thing by the McNairs,” he said.
