Tracy Morgan Trucker

I Was Not Drunk or High

I'm a Scapegoat!

The trucker who caused the fatal car crash that left Tracy Morgan in critical condition says he was not high on drugs or drunk when he slammed into the SUV ... and believes he's being skewered because a celeb was hurt in the accident.

A twitter account which appears to be Walmart trucker Kevin Roper was very active early Tuesday morning ... with a remorseful Roper saying, "I wish it was me and I can't express how horrible I feel."

Roper also denies reports he hadn't slept for 24 hours, claiming the bad press is all about finding a scapegoat, as he says, "because a famous person was involved." He wrote, "I was never charged at the scene of the accident because once again i was not guilty of any crime. Not until all the TV cameras came."

Roper seems to say he was not negligent and therefore not responsible for the crash, suggesting he was not at fault.

Roper concluded his tweets, writing, "So yes i am now most likely f****d because i had an unfortunate ACCIDENT with the wrong car that night."

You caused someone to die and now you're taking the cowards way out by saying it wasn't your fault? Karma will bite you in the ass

LOL, doesn't matter if he wasn't drunk or high. He was black!

Hundreds of big rig accidents happen daily. Do you think everybody's being arrested?

How about Tracy Morgan, was he wearing a seat belt? Why don't we start from there? There's really nothing to talk about if he wasn't even wearing seat belts.

That's crazy. If he would had been sleeping he would not been in what his on right now. Wish him the best but going to jail for not going to sleep is a little crazy.

he's absolutely right.. had this been a regular accident with no celebrities involved this would have been concluded an accident and everybody would have been on their way.. walmart would have had to pay some kind of restitution and he would have been fired.. but because there was a celebrity camara's came. his life and twitter account is put into the spotlight and he's now the bad guy..

Hey, pal, you are responsible, at the very least, for reckless driving resulting in a death. Also for grievous bodily harm. It doesn't matter if you were not high, etc. or if you had eight hours sleep just before the crash; the collision was your fault.

Unfortunately this guy is right...why wasn't he arrested at the scene...makes no sense if he was really at fault...i feel bad for Tracy and hope he had a fast recovery and its very unfortunate to the life lost and my thoughts are with his family...but what ever happened to innocent til proven guilty..i worked for WM 11 yrs and know just how much of an a$$hole company they are to work for...i just hope whatever the outcome its the right one and an innocent man doesn't go to prison or a guilty man walks

Well what happened? Why did you rear end the limo? Sounds like you are feeling sorry for yourself and do not want to accept responsibility.

Most frightening fact:

Every time a story like this comes out the majority of people prove they are prejudice and care nothing for due process. If you wonder why your "democracy" is being accused of overstepping, wonder why they're willing to spy on their own citizens, look no further than their citizens below acting like gods with their judgment after receiving zero facts about an ongoing investigation = pathetic.

Very simple. When you rear end a car, you're at fault. Period. Lawsuits occur when impairment can be proven. Hitting a celeb only puts a spotlight on truth.
