Comedian and 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan is suing one of world’s biggest companies after he was injured in a highway accident. Last month a Wal-Mart semi struck Morgan’s limousine van on the New Jersey Turnpike. Morgan broke his leg and ribs and suffered internal injuries. One of Morgan’s fellow passengers, comedian “Jimmy Mack,” was killed in the crash. Morgan’s lawyers filed the suit on Thursday in the U.S. District Court in New Jersey. It accuses Wal-mart of “gross, reckless, willful, wanton, and intentional conduct.”
Federal investigators found that the driver of the truck was going 65 mph, 20 mph over the posted speed limit that night, which had been lowered to 45 due to construction. The driver had been on the job for 13 1/2 hours when the crash occurred. That’s legal–the current law allows drivers to work 14 hours a day. This week, Wal-mart placed first in the global Fortune 500, beating out oil giant Shell for the honors.
