Tracy Morgan preparing lawsuit against Walmart

By Rebecca Lewis. CREATED Jul 12, 2014

Actor Tracy Morgan is taking legal action against Walmart.

He's suing the mega retailer for last month's crash on the New Jersey Turnpike. The crash sent him to the hospital and killed fellow comedian James McNair.

Walmart driver Kevin Roper is accused of plowing his truck into the van that was carrying Morgan, McNair and others.

The plaintiffs said Walmart was negligent by allowing Roper to drive after being up for more than a day.

Roper has pleaded not guilty to the charges he faces, including death by auto.

Morgan has since been moved from the hospital to a rehab center.
