The Truck Driver Involved In Tracy Morgan's Tragic Car Accident Wants His Criminal Charges Thrown Out

Filed under: Legal MattersTracy MorganWalmart

The truck driver involved in Tracy Morgan's horrific June 2014 car crash is hoping for a miracle.

According to legal reps, the truck driver AKA Kevin Roper wants criminal charges thrown out against him despite the severity of the case. For those who don't know, the crash killed Tracy's close friend and fellow comedian, James McNair.

Here's the tricky part: Morgan recently won a MASSIVE amount of money from a lawsuit against Walmart, the company Roper was driving for at the time of the incident. Given that Walmart essentially admitted wrongdoing by giving T.M. the cash, we have a feeling Kevin's request will be denied.

Despite the evidence against him, Roper believes the case should be dropped due to the public nature. Now that the legal matter is all over the news, the former truck driver thinks he won't be able to get a fair trial.

Unsurprisingly enough, this isn't the first time Kevin tried to get the charges dropped.

We'll be sure to keep you updated on the case when he makes his appeal this Tuesday.
