Paul Walker was an actor. People know him for his role in the Fast and Furious movies.

The actor was a passenger in the Porsche Carrera GT. A friend of his was driving when they hit a pole. The car became quickly on fire. The actor could not leave the car because he was injured. He died. This was in 2013.

Paul Walker’s daughter is suing Porsche. She says that the car is not as safe as it should be, and that her father died because of this.

Difficult words: furious (extremely angry, or full of energy), pole (a long metal or wooden stick which holds something), sue (to take somebody to court because he or she did something wrong to you).
