16-year-old Meadow Rain Walker has decided to press charges against Porsche, accusing the Stuttgart-based marque the car was at fault for the death of Paul Walker.
The lawsuit was filed on Monday and comes more than a year after the wife of the late Roger Rodas did the same thing, claiming the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT is the reason why both Walker and Rodas lost their lives in a tragic accident on November 30, 2013. Now, Meadow Rain Walker's attorney, Jeff Milam, says "the bottom line is that the Porsche Carrera GT is a dangerous car. It doesn't belong on the street."
According to the 18-page lawsuit, "the vehicle lacked safety features that are found on well-designed racing cars or even Porsche's least expensive road cars - features that could have prevented the accident or, at a minimum, allowed Paul Walker to survive the crash."
That being said, a police investigation has revealed Rodas was doing around 93 mph (150 km/h) in a 45 mph (72 km/h) zone at the moment of impact while Porsche's engineers discovered the Carrera GT was running on nine-year-old tires. Last year, Porsche Cars North America issued a statement clearly specifying the "vehicle had been altered from its original design state and had not been maintained properly."
