By | February 4, 2015

The Wal-Mart Stores Inc. driver whose truck crashed into a van carrying actor-comedian Tracy Morgan lost a legal bid to halt a lawsuit against the company while criminal charges are pending against him.

Kevin Roper, who is charged with vehicular homicide and assault by auto, may not intervene in a civil lawsuit filed by Morgan and other passengers injured on June 7, a magistrate judge ruled Tuesday in federal court in Trenton, New Jersey.

The crash killed comedian James McNair and seriously injured Morgan.
