Comedian Tracy Morgan suing Wal-Mart over fatal crash

TRENTON, N.J. - Tracy Morgan is suing Wal-Mart over last month's highway crash that seriously injured him and killed fellow comedian James McNair.

The lawsuit claims Wal-Mart was negligent when a driver of one of its tractor-trailers rammed into Morgan's limousine van.

Truck driver Kevin Roper has pleaded not guilty to death by auto and assault by auto charges.

A criminal complaint also accuses him of not sleeping for more than 24 hours before the crash, a violation of New Jersey law.
