Wal-Mart CEO Bill Simon has said his company will take "full responsibility" of a truck crash that badly injured actor and comedian Tracy Morgan, "if it's determined that our truck caused the accident."
In a written statement on Saturday, the CEO said that one of the company's trucks had been involved in the crash and said he was praying for the family and friends of McNair and everyone involved:
We are working quickly to understand what happened and are cooperating fully with law enforcement to aid their investigation.
The facts are continuing to unfold. If it's determined that our truck caused the accident, Walmart will take full responsibility.
Morgan is one of the best-known black comedians in the United States, finding humor in the often fraught realm of American race relations.
