Porsche Sued Over Paul Walker Death Crash

When Paul Walker died in a fiery crash late last year, his close friend and business partner Roger Rodas was behind the wheel. Now, Rodas' wife is suing automaker Porsche for wrongful death and negligence.

Kristine Rodas' suit, which was filed in Los Angeles on Monday, claims a faulty vehicle design was to blame for her husband's death, and that the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT involved in the crash suffered from a malfunctioning suspension. This directly contradicts authorities' claims that "unsafe speed" was the cause of the crash, and that mechanical problems were not to blame. However, it's worth noting that investigators were aided in their analysis by engineers from Porsche, so I'm sure claims of bias are on the horizon.

Walker was on a break from filing Fast and Furious 7 at the time of his death. The film is scheduled for release on April 10th of 2015. (Source)
