Tracy Morgan has settled his lawsuit against Walmart following a fatal traffic collision in June 2014 that left one man dead and Morgan seriously injured.

While the amount of the settlement is undisclosed, the 30 Rock star's attorney Benedict Morelli said in a statement released on Walmart's website, "Walmart took full responsibility for the accident, which we greatly appreciate."

Regarding the settlement, Morgan said in the statement, "Walmart did right by me and my family, and for my associates and their families. I am grateful that the case was resolved amicably."

On June 7, 2014, a Walmart truck crashed into the limo bus Morgan was riding in, along with a number of the comedian's friends. Morgan, his personal assistant Jeffrey Millea, and comedian Ardie Fuqua were injured in the crash. Millea and Fuqua were also plaintiffs in Morgan’s suit against Walmart.

Morgan's friend and fellow comic James McNair was killed in the collision, and Walmart settled with McNair's family earlier this year.

The driver of the truck, Kevin Roper, was traveling approximately 20 mph over the speed limit and had been awake for nearly 24 straight hours before the crash, according to officials at the National Transportation Safety Board.

The 46-year-old Morgan suffered broken ribs, a broken nose, a broken leg, severe head and back trauma, and is reportedly still recovering from his injuries nearly a year after the accident.
