Tracy Morgan settles suit with Wal-Mart over fatal crash

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - Actor-comedian Tracy Morgan has settled his lawsuit against Wal-Mart over a highway crash that killed one man and left Morgan and two friends seriously injured.

Morgan's lawyer, Benedict Morelli, said he and Walmart worked diligently to reach the settlement for the plaintiffs and their families.

"Walmart took full responsibility for the accident, which we greatly appreciate," he said Wednesday in a statement.

In the same statement, Morgan said Wal-Mart "did right by me and my family, and for my associates and their families. I am grateful that the case was resolved amicably."

Maybe now he's happy.Wal-Mart has vowed not to be so overly cooperative the next time a high profile accident occurs.It was indeed their drivers fault however.The next time he has financial problems he'll be back with more aches and pains.
