Kristine Rodas, widow of the driver of the Porsche Carrera GT, has filed suit blaming the car for the firey crash, not her husband's driving
Paul Walker, star of the Fast and the Furious films, died last November 30th in a Los Angeles suburb in a one-car crash that had Walker as the passenger, and his friend and business partner Roger Rodas as the driver, who was taking the star for a brief joyride after a charity event.
The cause appeared to be excessive speed in a small office park, causing Rodas to lose control. Rodas was an active sports car racer in the Pirelli World Challenge sports car series, where he competed primarily in hot-rodded Ford Mustangs.
The widow of Rodas is suing Porsche, alleging it designed a faulty vehicle. The wrongful death and negligence lawsuit was filed Monday in Los Angeles by Kristine Rodas.
According to the lawsuit, “The Carrera GT was unsafe for its intended use by reason of defects in its manufacture, design, testing, component and constituents, so that it would not safely serve its purpose." Porsche has yet to respond.
