“As we have said before, we are very sad whenever anyone is hurt in a Porsche vehicle, but we believe the authorities’ reports in this case clearly establish that this tragic crash resulted from reckless driving and excessive speed,” Porsche said in the statement.
Walker’s daughter, Meadow, filed the lawsuit stating that Porsche lacked proper safety features. There was also a disagreement on how fast the vehicle was traveling at the time of the accident. Law enforcement has claimed Roger Rodas, Walker’s friend who was driving the vehicle and also died in the crash, was speeding around 90 mph but the lawsuit says the max speed was 71 mph.
Walker died two years ago after Rodas lost control of Walker’s 2005 Porsche Carrera GT and crashed into a tree, claiming both of their lives.
“It is with great reluctance that Meadow Walker has authorized the filing of this lawsuit on her own behalf and as heir to Paul Walker’s estate,” Walker’s lawyer Jeff Milam said Monday. “She’s a teenage girl still dealing with the tragic loss of her father.”
