Quick recap, almost exactly a year ago comedian Tracy Morgan was involved in a collision with an 18 wheeler Walmart truck. The accident led to the death of fellow comedian, Jimmy Mac, as well as left Morgan in critical condition. He and three other plaintiffs have sued Walmart for “compensatory and statutory damages, punitive damages and legal fees.” As the details of the horrific accident began to unravel it was made public knowledge that the driver had been awake for 24 hours prior to the accident. In addition to the driver approaching the companies limit of 14 hour consecutive driving policy, he was going over 20 miles over the speed limit.

Tracy Morgan who has an estimated net worth of 18 million and a multitude of talents that include, acting, screenwriting, voice actors and writing wasn’t hurting for the money but it is the principal. He’s happy that Walmart took accountability for their employee and paid out not only Morgan but passengers Ardie Fuqia and Jeffery Millea in addition to settling with deceased Jimmy Mac’s family.

The exact amount hasn’t surfaced yet and we’re not sure it will due to confidential lawsuit mumbo jumbo but Morgan is satisfied which leads us to believe that Walmart settled with a healthy hunk of change. “Walmart did right by me and my family, and for my associates and their families.” said Morgan. He doesn’t sound the least bit displeased. Justice was served and now Morgan can continue to recover and mourn his friend with a piece of mind.

Walmart had this to say about the outcome of the law suit:

“Our thoughts continue to go out to everyone that was involved in the accident,” said Greg Foran, Walmart U.S. president and CEO, in the statement from the company. “While we know there is nothing that can change what happened, Walmart has been committed to doing what’s right to help ensure the well-being of all of those who were impacted by the accident. We worked closely with Mr. Morelli, and we are pleased to have reached an amicable settlement that ends this litigation. We are deeply sorry that one of our trucks was involved.”
