Tracy Morgan Responds To Walmart’s Claim That His Injuries Resulted From Not Wearing Seat Belt
Tracy Morgan is countering Walmart’s claim that the comedian and other passengers should have been wearing seat belts when a Walmart truck hit their limousine from behind earlier this summer, killing one passenger and leaving Morgan critically injured.
Here’s Morgan’s statement, via a tweet from CNBC:
Walmart said that the passengers’ injuries were at least partly caused by their “failure to properly wear an appropriate available seatbelt restraint device,” according to the AP. Morgan has sued Walmart over the crash, which killed his friend James McNair, 63.
Kevin Roper, the driver behind the wheel of the Walmart truck involved in the fatal crash, reportedly hadn’t slept in 24 hours.
Walmart did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Morgan’s statement.
Somebody in the PR department should have told them that this wasn’t gonna go over well. SMH.
