Family Of Man Killed In Tracy Morgan Crash Settles

NEW YORK, NY -- The family of a comedian killed in the New Jersey Turnpike crash that seriously injured Tracy Morgan has settled a wrongful death claim with Walmart.

An attorney representing the estate of James McNair told The Associated Press that the two adult children of the 62-year-old Peekskill, New York, resident are pleased with the settlement.

The amount of the settlement is confidential.

A Walmart spokeswoman says it worked closely with McNair's family to reach the settlement. Brooke Buchanan says Walmart is having discussions to work toward settlements with others who were injured.

McNair was riding with Morgan and others on the way back from Morgan's show in Delaware early on June 7 when a Walmart tractor-trailer slammed into them from behind.

Morgan, the former "Saturday Night Live" and "30 Rock" star, suffered a traumatic brain injury.
