0611-kevin-roper-splash-01Kevin Roper -- the truck driver facing charges over the fatal crash that involved Tracy Morgan -- pled not guilty in a New Brunswick court this afternoon.

Roper is facing charges of death by auto and assault by auto. His bail was set at $50,000.

Roper was driving a truck for Walmart on Saturday when he struck Morgan's limo. One person died as a result and Morgan is still in the hospital in critical condition.  

Roper has not only maintained his innocence ... he says he's a scapegoat because a celeb was involved.  He says this was simply an accident.

How can you say he is not gulity. He killed a human, and hurt people with the truck. If Wallmart is at fault then they should be also on trial because of forcing driver to operate the truck while tired with no sleep.
This is a problem that the GOP ok'd to happen by redoning laws.

I believe that the poor WalMart driver is being made a scapegoat for as he states, a cleb is involved. These drivers have to drive many hours over the limit if the want to make any money. I'll bet he has a family to suppot. Its no fun being away from your family driving a meserable 18 wheeler. Fred Gramcko

Before we all judge and convict him in the media, he deserves a fair trial. We would all expect the same if it was us in his shoes. Accidents do happen and if he is found not totally at fault then that is fine w/ me. Innocent until PROVEN guilty people. Remember that.

I agree with this man. He is a scapegoat. It was an accident. He has to live with the outcome of this accident for the rest of his life. Prayers for all involved.

Texting while driving is the best he can hope for. Initial reports say he had been up for more than 24 hours. A lot of truckers are on meth, so if he tested positive for that, he is positively screwed.
