Teenage daughter of the late “Fast and the Furious” star Paul Walker has settled a lawsuit with Porsche over her father’s tragic 2013 death. Meadow Walker 18 years old settled a suit a private suit with the company on October 16 and both parties are requesting that the case be dismissed in court. Paul Walker, who was 40 at time of his death, was killed in a fiery crash in Santa Clarita, California when Porsche Carrera GT he was a passenger in crashed and exploded. Roger Rodas, who was driving car at the time, also died in the crash.
The suit was filed against Porsche in 2015, claiming manufacturer had not installed proper safety features in vehicle. According to documents, suit alleged Porsche was aware the Carrera GT “had a history of instability and control issues,” yet still “failed to install its electronic stability control system.” It also alleges that Paul Walker was still alive moments after high-speed crash, but was unable to escape because he was trapped by a seatbelt. Meadow’s suit made point that if the safety feature had been installed, her father would still be alive. Details of settlement with Porsche were kept private. Paul Walker’s father, Paul Walker III, reached a settlement with German carmaker. In 2015, Meadow Walker was awarded $10,1 million to be paid into a trust after reaching a settlement with Rodas’ estate. Paul Walker left his $25 million estate entirely to Meadow.
