NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — Prosecutors and the defense lawyer in the 2014 crash that injured actor Tracy Morgan are due in court in November.

The Home News Tribune reports Nov. 9 was set for a status conference after both sides met at the Middlesex County Courthouse in New Brunswick on Thursday.

Authorities have charged Wal-Mart truck driver Kevin Roper of Georgia with aggravated manslaughter, vehicular homicide and aggravated assault. He has pleaded not guilty.

Investigators say Roper was speeding when he crashed into a limo van carrying Morgan and others on the New Jersey Turnpike. Morgan was injured and his friend and fellow comedian James McNair was killed.

Morgan reached a settlement with Wal-Mart last year.
