E Online – Tracy Morgan has filed a lawsuit against Wal-Mart over the deadly six-vehicle crash that left him with critical injuries and was allegedly caused by one of the retail giant’s truck drivers.

The papers were signed on July 10, submitted to a New Jersey court and also name fellow passengers Ardley Fuqua, a comic, and Morgan’s personal assistant Jeffrey Millea, plus the man’s wife Krista, as plaintiffs. The lawsuit, which was posted by The Hollywood Reporter, claims Wal-Mart was “careless and negligent in the ownership and operation of its motor vehicle, which caused Mr. Morgan to suffer severe personal injuries.” The case remains under investigation.

On June 7, the 45-year-old comedian, former “SNL” and “30 Rock” actor and father of four was riding in a limo bus with his entourage on a highway in New Jersey when a Wal-Mart semi-truck (also known as a tractor-trailer or big rig), slammed into it, causing it to overturn. Comedian James McNair, known as Jimmy Mack, 62, was riding with Morgan and died in the crash, which also involved five other vehicles. Morgan and other passengers were hospitalized. The actor was treated for a broken leg and ribs and later transferred to a rehabilitation facility to continue his recovery.
