Two years after Paul Walker’s tragic death in a car crash, his daughter, Meadow Walker, alleges Porsche is responsible for the death of her father and his friend Roger Rodas.
According to TMZ, 16-year-old Meadow has filed a lawsuit against the car manufacturer claiming that Walker was clenched by the seat belt of the Carrera GT when it crashed, which thrust his torso back with massive force and the impact broke his pelvis and ribs, thus making it almost impossible for him to get out of the passenger seat.
The lawsuit also adds that when the car banged into the tree, it took around 1 min 20 sec for the fire to erupt while the 40-year-old “Furious 7” actor was still alive. Unfortunately, he was so badly trapped inside that he couldn’t escape the fire. The suit clearly stated “Paul Walker breathed soot into his trachea while the Porsche Carrera GT burned.”
The lawsuit also invalidates the claim made by the Police which said driver Roger Rodas’ speeding over 80-93 mph was the primary cause of the crash. Rodas was driving between 63-71 mph the suit stated, notes Hollywood Life.
The lawyers of Miss Walker assertively raised questions about the controversial stability flaws that the Carrera GT had and that the Porsche Stability Management (PSM) could have fixed it, in order to avoid the divergence of the vehicle.
Jeff Milam, Meadow’s lawyer, said “The bottom line is 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,” TMZ noted.
As a Tribute to her Philanthropist father, Meadow posted a nostalgic picture of herself with her late dad on Sept 12 which would have been the 42nd birthday of the blue-eyed racer.
Reflecting on my father, I found myself reflecting on his passions. His passion for the ocean, his passion for rescuing animals, his passion for helping people and his passion for spontaneous goodwill. I wanted to start this foundation because I want to share that piece of him with the world. I want to share that part of him with others. I am tremendously proud to be launching The #PaulWalkerFoundation (@paulwalkerfdn) on his birthday. I can't think of a better way to celebrate my father. #DoGood
