According to a report from Page Six, Tracy Morgan recently commemorated the life of his friends on social media following the car crash in his $2,000,000 Bugatti. Tracy managed to leave the car wreck alive, but he lost one of his closest friends, James McNair.
On social media, Mr. Morgan, The Last OG creator said there isn’t a day that goes by where he doesn’t think about the friend he lost on that tragic day. The 50-year-old comedian and show-runner alluded to the car crash involving his car and a Walmart truck.
In 2016, Kevin Roper, the operator of the truck, pleaded guilty to vehicular homicide as well as four counts of aggravated assault. The retail juggernauts, Walmart, settled not one but two lawsuits with Morgan and McNair’s two children. It’s unclear how much they were paid.
