(AllHipHop News) Tracy Morgan is no longer rehabbing injuries sustained by his auto accident with a Wal-Mart truck back in May, but the battle has just begun. Today (July 14th), Tracy Morgan spoke out about his current health for the first time and pursues legal action against Wal-Mart.
Morgan was involved in an auto collision on the New Jersey Turnpike on June 7th when a Wal-Mart truck rammed into a limousine Morgan was in with four others. According to the New York Daily News, Morgan spoke to reporters outside of his Cresskill, N.J. home yesterday (July 13th) about his health stating "I'm OK. I feel strong." Morgan does have a scar across his right temple.
Morgan's friend 62-year-old comedian James McNair was killed as a result of the accident. 35 year old Kevin Roper, driver of the truck that collided with the limo, was charged with death by auto and assault by auto charges. McNair, who admitted to have been traveling for over 24 hours at the time of the crash, alleges that he did not fall asleep at the wheel. Morgan filed a lawsuit last Thursday in U.S. District Court in New Jersey (July 10th) against the retail giant Wal-Mart claiming criminal negligence:
As a result of Wal-Mart's gross, reckless, willful, wanton, and intentional conduct, it should be appropriately punished with the imposition of punitive damages.
Wal-Mart representatives have not addressed the impending lawsuit.
