Tracy Morgan and Walmart settled a lawsuit Wednesday over a June 2014 car crash that injured the comedian and three others, and killed one longtime friend. The terms were not immediately available, but Morgan released a statement indicating he was happy with the way the case turned out, ABC News reported.
"Walmart did right by me and my family, and for my associates and their families," Morgan said. "I am grateful that the case was resolved amicably."
Morgan's attorney, Benedict Morelli, said that Walmart took responsibility for the accident, which happened last year when one of the company's trucks hit a limo with Morgan and his friends inside on the New Jersey turnpike. Morgan and three others were injured, and comedian James "Jimmy Mack" McNair died, the Associated Press reported.
The truck's driver, Kevin Roper, was allegedly going 20 mph over the speed limit and hadn't slept in more than 24 hours. Roper wasn't a part of the Walmart lawsuit -- he faces separate criminal charges.
"While we know there is nothing that can change what happened, Walmart has been committed to doing what's right to help ensure the well-being of all of those who were impacted by the accident," Walmart CEO Greg Foran said in a statement. "Our thoughts continue to go out to everyone that was involved in the accident."
Wednesday's announcement again raised questions about the extent of Morgan's injuries and the progress of his recovery. Morgan, famous for his role in the NBC sitcom "30 Rock," reportedly suffered a broken leg, broken ribs and head trauma. The actor hasn't tweeted or posted to Facebook since the accident, and he skipped the "Saturday Night Live" 40th anniversary show in February, CBS News reported.
Morelli has told reporters he doesn't know whether Morgan will ever be able to perform again. "He's fighting to get better, and if there's a chance for him to be back to the Tracy Morgan he once was, he's going to try to do that," Morelli said in November.
