NEW YORK (AP) _ The family of a comedian killed in the New Jersey Turnpike crash that seriously injured Tracy Morgan has settled a wrongful death claim with Wal-Mart.

An attorney representing the estate of James McNair tells The Associated Press that the two adult children of the 62-year-old Peekskill, New York, resident are pleased with the settlement. The amount of the settlement is confidential.

A Wal-Mart spokeswoman didn’t immediately return a message seeking comment.

McNair was riding with Morgan and others on the way back from Morgan’s show in Delaware early on June 7 when a Wal-Mart tractor-trailer slammed into them from behind.

Morgan, the former “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock” star, suffered a traumatic brain injury. He was in rehab for several weeks before being released.
