Paul Walker’s daughter to sue Porsche

30.09.2015

THE passing of Paul Walker and his friend Roger Roda in a Porsche Carrera GT nearly two years ago was both tragic and shocking. Despite the fact that investigations concluded the vehicle was travelling at a high speed at the moment of the collision, details of a lawsuit against the German automaker have emerged.

Walker’s daughter, now 16 years old is suggesting, in a lawsuit filed this past week that Porsche knew that its Carrera GT had a reputation for being unstable and failed to install electronic systems to improve the car’s safety. The suit has also suggested - according to the Mail and Guardian - that the vehicle’s safety belt shoulder section snapped Walker’s torso back as the car’s rear section fractured.

The Times elaborated on the suit’s allegations: “This snapped Walker’s torso back with thousands of pounds of force, thereby breaking his ribs and pelvis, flattening his seat and trapping him in a supine position, where he remained alive until the vehicle erupted into flames one minute and 20 seconds later.”
