The truck driver involved in the crash that killed James McNair and injured several others, including comedian Tracy Morgan, was driving over the speed limit.

According to the National Transportation Safety Board, driver Kevin Roper was traveling at 65 mph in a 45 mph zone during the June 7 crash on the New Jersey Turnpike. NTSB says that particular stretch on the Turnpike is usually 55 mph, but was lowered to 45 mph due to construction.

Roper, who rammed into the limo bus carrying Morgan, pled not guilty last week to charges of death by auto. During the time of the fatal accident, Roper had reportedly been on duty for 13 hours 32 minutes, a half-hour shy of the federal limit.

He added, “What I mean by that is, in my lifetime, that’s when young black men in impoverished areas organized to help their communities and to take care of their own because society basically left them for dead.”
