The HOT 97 Morning Show


Tracy Morgan is on his way to a speedy recovery! For those of you who don’t recall, the comedian and his friends were hit by a Walmart truck that was going 20 miles over the speed limit. The passengers in Morgan’s limo were fatally injured and James McNair who was also a comedian and friend of Tracy’s passed away. Tracy himself suffered broken ribs, a broken nose, and a broken leg. He was just released from a rehab facility, and has decided to sue Walmart. He actually filed a suit in the U.S District Court in New Jersey claiming the Walmart (Kevin Roper) driver was “negligent”.

“This has been a terrible tragedy. We wish Mr. Morgan, Mr. Fuqua Jr., and Mr. Millea full recoveries” they continued. “Our thoughts continue to go out to them, their families and friends, as well as to the families and friends of everyone involved, including Mr. McNair who lost his life. We are deeply sorry that one of our trucks was involved.”

They also added:

“As we’ve said, we’re cooperating fully in the ongoing investigation.We know it will take some time to resolve all of the remaining issues as a result of the accident, but we’re committed to doing the right thing for all involved.”

This is such a sad story. We're just happy he's well!
