Suit against Porsche

The widow of the man who was driving a sports car when it crashed, killing him and Fast and Furious star Paul Walker (in picture) last year, is suing Porsche.

The suit filed on Monday alleges the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT the two men were in did not have a proper crash cage or safety features in the gas tank. The suit said these would have saved both men who died in the crash in November.

The suit was filed by Kristine Rodas, wife of the late driver Roger Rodas, in the Los Angeles County Superior Court.

A failure in the car’s suspension system forced it to swerve out of control and hit trees while driving in Santa Clarita, California, according to the suit filed by Rodas.

It seeks unspecified damages from Porsche Cars North America. — AFP
