Wal-Mart and the family of James McNair, who was killed in the June car crash when Tracy Morgan’s tour bus collided with a Walmart truck, have finally reached a settlement.

Though the settlement amount is unknown, the laywer representing McNair’s children said the company “stepped up to the plate and took care of them.”

“We know there is nothing we can do to change what happened to Mr. McNair but Walmart and his family have worked closely together to reach an agreement,” Wal-Mart spokesperson Brooke Buchanan said.

“We will continue to work to conclude all of the remaining issues as a result of the accident and we are committed to doing what is right.”

Morgan’s lawsuit he filed in July has yet to be settled with the company. The driver of the truck, Kevin Roper, had been awake for over 24 hours, but plead not guilty to vehicular homicide and assault. The company originally placed blame for Morgan’s injuries on him because he wasn’t wearing his seat belt.  (RELATED: Is Tracy Morgan’s Career Over?)
