Walmart Apologizes for Truck's Role in Crash

Tracy-morgan-1Actor Tracy Morgan is in critical condition after a limo accident involving a Walmart truck. Morgan is most famous for his TV roles in 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live.

The crash caused one death (Morgan's mentor, James "Jimmy Mack" McNair) and two other critical injuries. The Walmart driver is facing criminal charges and is accused of driving after not sleeping for 24 hours. In a statement, Walmart President Bill Simon extended the company's concern:

Discussion Starters:

  • It's still unclear what role the Walmart driver played in the crash. Is Walmart's apology premature?
  • Assess the statement. Is it appropriate coming from the CEO? What changes, if any, would you suggest the company make?
