Tracy Morgan Forgave the Truck Driver Who Hit Him in 2014
Tracy Morgan dropped by Conan O’Brien’s late-night talk show where discussed his tour bus’s collision with a Walmart tractor trailer in 2014 that injured him and claimed the life of his friend James McNair, stating that he’s ready to forgive and more on.
“I forgave him,” the 47-year-old actor said. “I’m not even made at him no more, but you know who is mad at him? All my white neighbors.”
Morgan explained that, after his near-fatal accident, he decided to move and, according to him, his new neighbors aren’t thrilled about his arrival.
“If you wouldn’t have hit his ass, he wouldn’t be living next door to me!” he joked from the perspective of the residents who live near him.
After the highly-publicized accident, Morgan received a settlement from Walmart in 2015. Although the exact amount was not revealed, it was reportedly substantial. Morgan got his new aforementioned home as well as a new top-of-the-line ride — a Lamborghini.
When O’Brien asked how fast he goes in in his new sports car, Morgan replied: “30 miles per hour, so everybody in the neighborhood can see it. They ain’t never seen a black motherfucker in a Lamborghini.”
“I don’t do speed,” Morgan told the cheering audience. “Speed is for kids.”
