Actor-comedian Tracy Morgan has settled his lawsuit against Wal-Mart over a highway crash that killed one passenger and left Morgan and two friends seriously injured.

Morgan said Wal-Mart “did right by” him and his family.

The Bentonville, Ark.-based company called it an “amicable settlement.” Details weren’t disclosed.

A Wal-Mart truck slammed into the back of a limo van carrying Morgan and the others on the New Jersey Turnpike after a show in Delaware in June 2014.

Comedian James “Jimmy Mack” McNair was killed. Morgan, who starred on “Saturday Night Live” and “30 Rock,” suffered head trauma, a broken leg and broken ribs. Wal-Mart reached a settlement with McNair’s two children in January.

Passengers Ardley Fuqua of Jersey City and Jeffrey Millea of Shelton, Conn., also suffered serious injuries in the crash and were plaintiffs in the lawsuit against Wal-Mart.
