Tracy Morgan Has Settled With Walmart Over Fatal Limo Bus Crash

May 27, 2015 / Posted by:

It’s been nearly a year since the New Jersey Turnpike crash that killed comedian James McNair and left Tracy Morgan in a bad way with a broken leg, broken ribs and a brain injury. Tracy hasn’t worked since and he wasn’t well enough to do Saturday Night Live’s 40th anniversary special back in February. Since the crash, Tracy’s lawyers and Walmart have been fighting it out. Tracy’s lawyers pointed out that the driver of the Walmart truck admitted to police that he hadn’t slept in 24 hours before the multi-car crash. Walmart’s lawyers tried to blame Tracy for his injuries by saying that he wasn’t wearing a seatbelt. Well, they’re not going to take their shank fight to a courtroom, because E! News reports that they have settled.

James McNair’s family got $10 million when they settled with Walmart in March. We won’t ever know how much money Tracy got from Walmart, because he signed a confidentiality agreement. He released this statement today and it’s best if you read it in Tracy Jordan’s voice.

“Walmart did right by me and my family, and for my associates and their families. I am grateful that the case was resolved amicably.”

My guess is that Walmart “did right” by him by giving enough money to buy several Benihana franchises and fund a real Who Dat Ninja? movie. And I bet that in a few months, Walmart will be hitting Tracy up for some child support, because I’m sure that during a break in settlement negotiations, he took their ugly orange sunburst logo behind a middle school and got it pregnant.
