Despite the damage that has been done, Walmart is taking full responsibility for the accident that took place on June 7 of last year.

“While we know there is nothing that can change what happened, Wal-Mart has been committed to doing what’s right to help ensure the well-being of all of those who were impacted by the accident,” said the company’s U.S. president, Greg Foran.

The 35-year-old driver of the Walmart truck, Kevin Roper, had apparently not slept in over 24 hours and was speeding at the time of the crash. Roper has plead not guilty to one count of death by auto and four counts of assault by auto.
