The former 30 Rock star was travelling in a limousine with pals on 7 June (14) when a truck driven by Wal-Mart employee Kevin Roper collided with their vehicle, leaving Morgan with severe injuries and killing his friend James 'Jimmy MACk' MCNair.

Morgan, who is still recovering, filed a federal lawsuit for negligence against Wal-Mart executives in July (14), but his suit was temporarily put on hold as Roper faced a separate criminal case, in which he pleaded not guilty to one criminal count of death by auto and four counts of assault by auto.

But on Wednesday (27May15), Morgan and Wal-Mart bosses reached a confidential settlement.

A statement released by Morgan reads: "Walmart (sic) did right by me and my family, and for my associates and their families. I am grateful that the case was resolved amicably."

Greg Foran, Wal-Mart U.S. president and CEO states, "Our thoughts continue to go out to everyone that was involved in the accident. While we know there is nothing that can change what happened, Wal-Mart has been committed to doing what's right to help ensure the well-being of all of those who were impacted by the accident.

"We are pleased to have reached an amicable settlement that ends this litigation. We are deeply sorry that one of our trucks was involved."

Comedian MCNair's relatives previously accepted a $10 million (£6.25 million) payment from Wal-Mart bosses to settle their wrongful death suit.
