Los Angeles: Comedian Tracy Morgan has slammed Walmart for blaming his accident on him while the company's truck driver slammed into their limo bus in June this year.
The company, in its court filing, said Morgan and his fellow Passengers' failure to wear seatbelts is the reason that one man was killed while four others, including the comedian sustained serious injuries.
Morgan said he was struggling hard to get well soon, reported E! News.
"After I heard what Walmart said in court I felt I had to speak out. I can't believe Walmart is blaming me for an accident that they caused. My friends and I were doing nothing wrong. I want to thank my fans for sticking with me during this difficult time. I love you all. I'm fighting hard every day to get back," the '30 Rock' star said
Morgan suffered broken ribs, a broken nose and a broken leg that required surgery. His longtime friend James "Jimmy Mack" McNair was killed in the six-vehicle crash, which occurred on the New Jersey Turnpike when Morgan and his entourage were on their way home from a show.
Kevin Roper, the driver of the truck, has pleaded not guilty to charges of vehicular manslaughter and assault by auto.
