After the fatal accident in New Jersey almost a year ago, actor Tracy Morgan and Wal-Mart recently agreed to a settlement, the Los Angeles Times reported on May 27.

Though the details of the settlement were not released, the multinational retail company acknowledged “full responsibility” for the June 7 accident that killed James McNair and injured others, including Morgan. Morgan and fellow comedians were returning from a show in Delaware when the vehicle they were riding in was struck by an 18-wheeler Wal-Mart truck. Investigators later found that the truck driver had been awake for 24 hours and was driving with excessive speed when the crash happened. Morgan said in a statement that he was grateful the case was able to be resolved without further dispute.
