Los Angeles: Almost two years after Paul Walker’s death in a car crash in Santa Clarita, California, the late actor’s father has sued automobile company Porsche for wrongful death and negligence.
In a lawsuit filed on Wednesday and obtained by ew.com, Paul William Walker III says that the Porsche Carrera GT that the actor was riding in lacked safety features that could have saved his life, and that Porsche knew the model had a history of instability and control issues.
He has sought unspecified damages.
Walker was sitting in the passenger seat when his friend Roger Rodas lost control of the car and crashed into a tree, causing the car to burst into flames. Both Walker, 40, and Rodas, 38, died in the crash.
