Tracy Morgan settles suit with Wal-Mart over fatal crash
Actor-comedian Tracy Morgan has settled his lawsuit against Wal-Mart over a crash on the New Jersey Turnpike that killed one man and left Morgan and two friends seriously injured.
A filing in federal court in Newark on Wednesday refers to a confidential settlement reached by the two sides.
Bentonville, Arkansas-based Wal-Mart Stores Inc. calls it an "amicable settlement." Details haven't been disclosed.
Morgan released a statement saying, "Wal-Mart did right by me and my family and for my associates and their families. I am grateful the case was resolved amicably."
A Wal-Mart truck slammed into the back of a limo van carrying Morgan and the others back from a show in Delaware in June 2014. Comedian James "Jimmy Mack" McNair was killed. Morgan suffered head trauma, a broken leg and broken ribs.
Wal-Mart reached a settlement with McNair's two children in January.
The driver of the truck faces charges in state court.
