Truck accidents happen multiple times every day throughout the United States. Although we see photographs or footage of the wrecks, we rarely see any as notable as the crash that killed comedian Jimmy Mac (James McNair) and landed comedian and actor Tracy Morgan in a coma for two weeks. Even a year after the accident, Tracy Morgan still has a lot of healing to do from a severe brain injury.
In this case, it was the fault of Walmart OTR driver who struck the vehicle Morgan was in, going 20 miles per hour over the speed limit and without enough sleep. In the court cases associated with this accident, the corporate chain accepted full responsibility and has settled with the families affected, helping with medical bills and burial costs as well as wages lost. Although the damages done will never be covered by a monetary settlement, Morgan has said Walmart has made it up to his family for the damages done.
