Walmart Claims Comedian Partly Responsible for Crash Injuries

 Tuesday, September 30, 2014


Walmart has responded to a lawsuit filed by Tracy Morgan over a deadly car crash that left the comedian in critical condition. The big box store blamed the injuries suffered by Morgan on his failure to wear a seat belt.
Walmart filed a 28-page response to a complaint by lawyers acting for Morgan and three others. Police said a truck driven by Walmart employee Kevin Roper collided with the rear of the vehicle in which Morgan was riding. Roper pleaded not guilty in June to criminal charges that include vehicular homicide and assault by auto.
