The actor’s father has decided to mirror his late son daughter’s decision to call Porsche to answer for what they call a lack of safety features in the Carrera GT that was involved in the fiery crash.
Paul Walker Sr. has also decided to press charges against the German sports car maker, claiming the Stuttgart-based automaker constructed the Carrera GT without safety elements that would have allowed Paul Walker to possibly survive the crash. Back in September, Paul Walker’s daughter Meadow Rain was the first to initiate a wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche and now the father is taking the same road. He claims his son died two years ago because the Carrera GT in which he was riding as a passenger was void of safety features that could have prevented the tragic loss. This would also be the third case against Porsche related to the fiery accident, as Roger Rodas’ wife (the driver of the car) also took the same measure.
The wrongful death claim has been announced more than a year ago as Kristine Rodas said “the Carrera GT was unsafe for its intended use by reason of defects in its manufacture, design, testing, component and constituents, so that it would not safely serve its purpose.” Meanwhile, Porsche announced some time ago the sole responsible for the accident is Roger Rodas, with the Santa Clarita, California crash caused by the excessive speed – he was going with 93 mph (150 km/h) in a 45 mph (72 km/h) zone, with the Carrera GT also “altered from its original design”, not “maintained properly”, and also had old tires.
