Tracy Morgan’s Out of The Hospital And Suing The Shit Out of Walmart
You might have thought Jessica Alba‘s butt was the best news you’d see all morning, and you’re right, but this is pretty damn close: Tracy Morgan is back home after a fatal car accident that left his best friend and mentor Jimmy Mack dead. He’s also suing Walmart’s dick off for over-working their drivers which allegedly caused the crash. The New York Post reports:
In addition to claiming that Roper was exhausted when he crashed his 18-wheeler, the suit alleges he had driven more than 700 miles from his home in Jonesboro, Ga., to a Walmart distribution center in Smyrna, Del., before beginning his shift.
”Walmart was careless and negligent in the ownership and operation of its motor vehicle, which caused Mr. Morgan to suffer severe personal injuries,” the suit reads.
Roper, who was driving 65 mph in a 45 mph zone at the time of the accident, was quickly approaching the company’s limit of 14 hours on the clock, and had been driving for nine hours and 37 minutes straight, investigators concluded.
When reached for comment, Walmart said, “Tracy Morgan wants us to cough up a couple mil to himself and the family of the deceased? Boom. Done. Here’s some giant checks for everybody, and now back to making hundreds of billions of dollars by being absolutely awful. You people are like ants to us.”
