Walmart has responded to a lawsuit filed by Tracy Morgan over a deadly car crash that left the comedian in critical condition. The big box store blamed the injuries suffered by Morgan on his failure to wear a seat belt.
Walmart filed a 28-page response to a complaint by lawyers acting for Morgan and three others. Police said a truck driven by Walmart employee Kevin Roper collided with the rear of the vehicle in which Morgan was riding.
The next step for Morgan’s side is to file a written statement specifying the amount of damages alleged in the initial complaint. Walmart is asking for a trial by jury.
Representatives for Morgan did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
