We already knew the truck driver who crashed into Tracy Morgan hadn't gotten enough sleep.
But was he breaking the law too??
According to the National Transportation Safety Board's new report on the accident, Wal-Mart trucker Kevin Roper was going well above the speed limit!
Apparently the speed limit on that stretch of road was 45 mph due to construction, but data from the truck tells investigators that at the moment of the crash the truck was going at least 65!
If it turns out this reckless driving is what injured Tracy and cost James McNair his life, the vehicular manslaughter charge seems all too justified.
Mr. Roper has plead not guilty, but this new information does NOT look good for his defense.
