Tracy Morgan’s claims of financial hardship after the car accident that left him injured is something Kevin Roper can’t get with.

According to TMZ, Roper, the driver who injured Morgan, says the fact that the comic/actor could afford a limo at the time of the crash is enough to put doubt in the former “30 Rock” star’s claims of financial woes.

Roper’s thoughts are the latest development in the aftermath of the accident, which resulted in the death of one person. Morgan and other victims of the incident are suing Walmart with claims that Roper caused the accident because he was sleep deprived.

If he’s convicted of death and assault by auto, Roper could get 30 years in prison.

As it stands now, Roper has filed new legal documents, asking a judge to include him in the case so his rights are not compromised. TMZ notes that Roper is also requesting that the civil case take a backseat until his criminal case is over and done with.

Nevertheless, Morgan wants to move forward with the case in light of him needing the money from a judgment, presumably because he can no longer work, the site stated.

In his new legal documents, Roper points out the difference between his financial woes and Morgan’s. In his eyes, Morgan’s woes can’t compare to his as Morgan gets driven in a fancy limo and he makes due as a truck driver.

    Tracy get well soon! The A%$#hole truck driver, your 30 years are coming. I dare you make such a statement. Whether or not Tracy can afford a limo, that is not the question. The question is YOU are at fault; Walmart has to pay; and YOU are going to jail for 30 years. Keep your ridiculous comments to yourself.

  2. Thanks for sharing. We have a lot of depression and anxiety in our family. As a church, I think it’s important to mention those things to help others know it’s ok. It’s helpful to go to counseling and anyone can suffer with depression sometimes.

    Thanks for your honesty and sharing….. http://snipr.com/29j0a4v

    God knows he won’t make any money on this horrible Chris Rock fiasco. Walmart can pay…they’re crooks….and the driver should’ve followed laws.

  4. Since I don’t ever believe anything from TMZ’s lips, I’m praying that this man didn’t say what they said he said. No one knows what Tracy Morgan’s financial situation is but Tracy and his bank – and so what if he can afford to have a limo driver – what does that have to do with the drivers culpability in this tragic accident – a man died and others have been hurt, their lives turned upside down. Driver you’re at fault and must bear some responsibility for your role, whether Tracy is a millionaire or a poor man

  5. The comments posted weren’t posted by the driver. I’m a driver. I know the protocol involved with drivers and accidents. The media has an effect in swaying sentiment. Know the facts before making any assumptions.

      Who knows for sure who said what or who did what especially when it comes to the TMZ’s (and tabloids) of the world. This internet is a messy place and people say whatever they want anytime they want. Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one. Nobody cares about the facts, they hear a garage-ass story and they run with it, no confirmations, no real proof, just bullshit 24/7. I don’t know or care about the driver, just making a general statement.

    • Cedric, one fact that we are all aware of is that driver caused the accident that claimed the life of one man and injured others – he has to be held accountable and if he didn’t say or post any comments then he should continue down that road and keep his mouth shut, that way no one can falsely accuse him of saying something that he didn’t say.

    He’s got a lot of nerve. If Morgan can’t work he can’t get paid either so why would he think that it’s OK for him to talk about his financial situation

  7. The Walmart truck driver is an asshole!

    I wish Tracy Morgan a speedy recovery and hope that he wins this lawsuit–not for the $$$ but for the principle!

    First, Walmart blamed Mr. Morgan for his own injuries stating that if he had been wearing his seatbelt, none of the injuries he sustained would have occurred.

    Now you have the truck driver adding his two cents which is totally irrelevant. Yo truck driver-if your dumb ass had any sense you would’ve checked into a motel and gotten some sleep instead of falling asleep behind the wheel and causing this tragic accident!!!!!!
