WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — Court papers show that the children of the comedian who was killed in the crash that injured Tracy Morgan won a $10 million settlement from Walmart.

The amount was disclosed in documents filed in New York’s Westchester County, where comedian James McNair lived until the June 7 accident on the New Jersey Turnpike.

McNair died when a Walmart truck hit a van carrying him, Morgan and others.

Morgan’s lawyer says the “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock” star suffered a traumatic brain injury.

The McNair family lawyer announced a settlement in January, but the amount was said to be confidential. However, he disclosed the $10 million figure in court papers supporting his request for nearly $3 million in legal fees.

Walmart said it could not discuss the terms.
