Meadow Walker, the daughter of Fast and Furious actor Paul Walker, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche.
The lawsuit is specifically targeted towards the Porsche Carrera GT which is the vehicle Walker was a passenger in when it was crashed with Roger Rodas behind the wheel. Both men died in the crash.
In the lawsuit, it is claimed that the seatbelt of the hardcore German supercar “snapped Walker’s torso back with thousands of pounds of force, thereby breaking his ribs and pelvis.” It is reported that Walker was trapped inside the Carrera GT for over a minute before the car caught fire which ultimately led to his death.
Additionally, the lawsuit explains how the Carrera GT didn’t have adequate safety features which could have prevented the crash like an electronic stability control system. It also asserts the the fire was triggered by faulty rubber fuel lines.
Meadow Walker’s attorney Jeff Milam told People Magazine that “the Porsche Carrera GT is a dangerous car. It doesn’t belong on the street. And we shouldn’t be without Paul Walker or his friend, Roger Rodas.”
