“We’re praying for the family and friends of the passenger who lost his life
in the terrible accident in New Jersey. Our hearts go out to everyone involved
and we hope those who were injured get the care that they need and make a full
recovery.

“This is a tragedy and we are profoundly sorry that one of our trucks was
involved. We are working quickly to understand what happened and are
cooperating fully with law enforcement to aid their investigation.

“The facts are continuing to unfold. If it’s determined that our truck caused
the accident, Walmart will take full responsibility.

“Safety is our absolute highest priority, but that is no comfort whatsoever to
the families and friends who are suffering today. We offer them our deepest
condolences. We can’t change what happened, but we will do what’s right for
the family of the victim and the survivors in the days and weeks ahead.”
