Tracy Morgan in a wheel chair while undergoing rehabilitation to walk properly again after accident
Comedian/actor, Tracy Morgan, has responded to outrageous claims by attorneys representing retail giant, Walmart, laying blame on him for the serious, life threatening injuries he sustained in a fatal crash caused by one of their overworked, speeding drivers. The Walmart driver slammed into the star's limo bus, after he was on the road for 24-hours without sleep.
Morgan stated in response to Walmart's lawyer's claims, "I can't believe Walmart is blaming me for an accident that they caused. My friends and I were doing nothing wrong. I want to thank my fans for sticking with me during this difficult time. I love you all. I'm fighting hard every day to get back."
Walmart's attorneys are really pushing it in trying to state a seatbelt could have spared Morgan injury in the above posted limo bus their 18-wheeler smashed up
Walmart's attorneys have made this case that much worse in the court of public opinion, by blaming Morgan for not wearing a seatbelt. However, anyone who has seen the wrecked and crumpled limo bus, that was slammed into by the massive 18-wheeler truck, should have the common sense to deduce a seatbelt would not have prevented injury to the occupants of the practically crushed vehicle. The limo bus was so smashed and knocked over onto its side, all occupants sustained some form of damage and one of Morgan's friends died.
Word of advice to Walmart, get new lawyers. No reasonable set of jurors will feel sorry for anyone but Morgan and his fellow passengers once they see what your driver did to his limo bus. Not to mention, the anger they will feel when reading your lawyers blamed Morgan for the whole thing, rather than accepting responsibility for a criminally negligent, exhausted driver, who was arrested by police for reckless driving.
