Tracy Morgan is recovering from his car accident — in fact, he just left rehab, according to TMZ, which is great news — and now he’s suing Walmart, blaming the company for the crash. The man who hit the limo Mr. Morgan was riding in was impossibly tired, and Morgan blames the company for overworking him. From TMZ:
Morgan filed suit in New Jersey alleging the company should never have allowed truck driver Kevin Roper to drive for nearly 10 hours straight after being awake for more than 24 hours.
The suit — reported in the NY Post — claims Tracy sustained, “severe painful bodily injuries, including but not limited to multiple fractures which required multiple surgeries, extensive medical treatment and will require significant physical rehabilitation.”
According to the lawsuit … Roper had driven 700 miles from his home to the Walmart distribution center before beginning his fatal drive. One person died when Roper was tooling along in his tractor-trailer at 65 in a 45 MPH zone and slammed into the SUV.
I think this is very interesting that he’s holding the company accountable and not the driver. What do you think of this?
