On 30 November 2013, the world lost one of its finest actors, humanitarian and philanthropist, the star of the Fast and Furious film franchise- Paul Walker. Paul’s fans were left in a state of shock when they heard about his untimely death. At approximately 3:30 pm PST, Paul Walker left his charity event and was heading home in Porsche Carrera GT. Car crashed into a concrete lamppost and two trees on Hercules Street, in a 45 miles per hour (72 km/h) speed zone near Kelly Johnson Parkway in Valencia. Car burst into flames in no time. As the world tried to come to terms with the actor’s untimely death, through various tributes by his fans and his friend Vin Diesel, Paul’s family was out to know the cause of his death. His daughter filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche. The company has responded and revealed the real reason behind Paul Walker’s death. Check out the entire story below:
Paul was killed as a passenger in the accident, his driver Roger was behind the wheel
Paul Walker’s daughter filed a wrongful death lawsuit in California
She made serious allegations about the car having control problems
Porsche responded to her allegations and revealed the real reason behind his death!
Porsche says that it was his driver Roger Roads who failed to control the car
Investigators say that the car was travelling at 95-100 mph while the speed limit was 45 mph
Prosche says that Paul and Roger drove the car at such high speeds on purpose
Porsche will not recover damages for Paul Walker’s death
Paul’s daughter however will continue pursuing the case till Porsche claims some responsibility in the car crash
According California’s law, if the jury found that Walker was 99% at fault for the crash and Porsche was 1% responsible, Walker’s daughter would receive 1% of the jury award.
Regardless of who’s at fault, it is really unfortunate that we lost Paul Walker this early
