Truck Driver in Tracy Morgan Crash Has Been Indicted

Read the charges

Malcolm Venable

Kevin Roper, who was driving the Wal-Mart truck that crashed into a limo van, killing one man and severely injuring Tracy Morgan in 2014, was indicted by a New Jersey grand jury Wednesday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Roper's charges include first-degree aggravated manslaughter, second-degree vehicular homicide and third-degree aggravated assault charges -- these despite Wal-Mart's settlement of the case. A report from the National Transportation Safety Board in August said Roper, whose record contained previous charges of vehicular homicide and assault by auto, failed to slow down before the crash despite a warning on the New Jersey Turnpike where the accident occurred. He did not appear in court.
