“The case is settled, but the pain is always going to be there,” Tracy Morgan said Monday in his first interview since the deadly car accident a year ago that nearly took his life.

The comedian spoke to TODAY’s Matt Lauer exclusively, less than a week after settling a lawsuit against Walmart over the June 7, 2014 crash.

“Bones heal, but the loss of my friend will never heal,” Morgan told Lauer.

Morgan and several friends were returning from a performance when the limousine they were traveling in on the New Jersey Turnpike was rear-ended by a Walmart truck. The “30 Rock” star suffered a broken leg, several broken ribs and severe brain trauma. His mentor, fellow comedian James McNair, was killed in the collision. Two other passengers in the limo were seriously injured.
