A truck accident can have a profound impact on victims and the lives of victims. A truck accident in another state, involving a popular chain retailer, recently killed one person and critically injured actor and comedian Tracy Morgan, as well as others. According to a recent criminal complaint filed against the truck driver, he had allegedly been awake for 24 hours when the semi-truck crash took place. The chain retailer that employed the driver, Walmart, released a statement that it was Wal-Mart's belief that the truck driver was working within federal service regulations at the time of the accident. The CEO of Walmart commented that if its truck was the cause, Walmart would take responsibility. The 35-year old truck driver has been charged with vehicular homicide and assault by auto related to the accident.
