In the early morning of June 7, 2014, a Walmart truck driver swerved out of his lane to avoid hitting cars in front of him and instead crashed into a limo bus carrying comedian, Tracy Morgan, and friends. The impact overturned the limo bus and set off a chain reaction involving 4 other vehicles. A passenger in the limo was killed and Morgan and 2 others were injured.
The accident led to several court proceedings and allegations, the most recent one in the news right now. Walmart alleges that Morgan and his friends are responsible because they did not have seat belts on, while attorneys for Morgan’s group claim Walmart was negligent due to the number of hours the driver was on the road for.
