Tracy Morgan

Walmart Will Take Responsibility

If Its Driver's to Blame

6/7/2014 1:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Walmart is stepping up ... saying it will pay expenses for the victims in the crash that left Tracy Morgan in critical condition Saturday morning if its driver is found at fault ... this according to their CEO.

Walmart President/CEO Bill Simon says they're working with investigators to figure out what led to the crash ... adding, "this is a tragedy and we are profoundly sorry that one of our trucks was involved."

Simon says, "We can't change what happened, but we will do what's right for the family of the victim and the survivors in the days and weeks ahead."

Prosecutors have already charged the driver, Kevin Roper, with death by auto ... among other charges.

It's not Walmart's fault - it's the driver's inability to follow safety when driving. The driver was obviously not paying attention to oncoming traffic, that's with anybody, if you're not watching the road you will cause an accident.

Do you think that this is the first time a Walmart driver was at blame for a death? No. So why doesn't Walmart pay those families pain as well? Not famous enough to publicize the charity I guess.

They said if the TRUCK was responsible. Not the driver. You can bet that will be Walmart's out. They'll put it on the driver.
