Walker’s daughter sues Porsche - level 3

Walker’s daughter sues Porsche - level 3

09-10-2015 15:00

The daughter of the late actor Paul Walker is suing Porsche over the crash which killed the star. The 16-year-old has filed a lawsuit against the car manufacturer, claiming it's at fault for her father's death. The Fast and Furious actor was a passenger in the Porsche Carrera GT a friend was driving when it hit a pole and burst into flames in 2013.

Meadow Rain Walker is claiming that the carmaker took safety shortcuts, and design flaws meant her father was trapped in the vehicle after the crash. Legal documents reportedly say the car's seatbelt "snapped Walker's torso back with thousands of pounds of force, thereby breaking his ribs and pelvis," meaning he could not escape the fire.

They claim the car lacked "features that could have prevented the accident or, at a minimum, allowed Paul Walker to survive the incident".

Porsche is yet to publicly respond to the claims.
