Car Company Porsche Responds to Death Lawsuit Filed by Paul Walker’s Daughter Meadow

Published

on

So Porsche has responded to Meadow Walker’s wrongful death lawsuit, which claimed her father’s tragic death was due to design flaws with the car he was in.

Lawyers for Meadow, 16, claim the Fast and Furious star survived the impact of the crash but suffered horrifically when he was helplessly trapped inside the 2005 Carrera GT when it burst into
flames.

Responding to the claims on Tuesday, Porsche said in a statement:

“As we have said before, we are very sad whenever anyone is hurt in a Porsche vehicle, but we believe the authorities’ reports in this case clearly establish that this tragic crash resulted from reckless driving and excessive speed.”Law enforcement officials said at the time the car was going 80 to 93 MPH.

According to the lawsuit, when the car crashed and broke apart the seat belt “snapped Walker’s torso back with thousands of pounds of force, thereby breaking his ribs and pelvis.”

The suit claims the actor was trapped inside the car and was still alive when the fire broke out 1 minute and 20 seconds after it hit the tree.

“Paul Walker breathed soot into his trachea while the Porsche Carrera GT burned,” it alleges.The teen’s lawyers also claim the Porsche wouldn’t have lost control if it had a better stabilization system and the company was aware of their Carrera GT having a “history of instability and control issues”.

According to the lawsuit, Roger Rodas, who was driving the car, was going between 63 and 71 MPH, while law enforcement officials said it was going 80 to 93 MPH.

They claim it would never have spun out of control if the system was better, and argue that the defect could have been corrected with a Porsche Stability Management System – which is found in a variety of other models – which prevents swerving.

“The bottom line is that the Porsche Carrera GT is a dangerous car. It doesn’t belong on the street. And we shouldn’t be without Paul Walker or his friend, Roger Rodas,” the teen’s lawyer added to TMZ

Nigerian actress and reality star, Lilian Afegbai has said a man who does not have a house and car of his own before settling down is not serious with his life.

She stated this on Toke Moments show while talking about how she desires to be with a man who lives comfortably.

According to the Big Brother Africa alumni, she is doing well for herself and would expect that her man can also afford to buy his own house rather than pay rent.

Lilian, however, said she is not looking for a billionaire because in reality that standard may be far reaching.

She explained that buying house in Nigeria does not really require having so much money as she is already making down payments for her own house.

The screen diva further said that any man who cannot buy a house for himself can’t be with her because it means they are not mentally inclined.

A Liberian TikTok content creator identified as @Realcharley22, has been banned by the social media platform for spreading fake news about a daughter of the vice president of Nigeria, Kiki Osinbajo.

The TikTok influencer had posted earlier in the week that Kiki was arrested in the United Kingdom because she was in possession of large amount of money in dollars.

Although the user, who posted photos and videos to support the claim, had since come out to refute the news after Nigerian blogger, Tunde Ednut, posted that it was untrue.

Consequently Nigerians in their numbers rushed to report the page for deceiving the public and checks on the page on Saturday revealed that the account was no longer on TikTok.

@Realcharley22 barely 24 hours after sharing the false video, shared another video apologising to Kiki and Nigerians for the post saying his source confused the lady in the video for Kiki.

He said, “I want to apologise to Kiki Osinbajo because she never got arrested. The story is not true and my source deceived me and took someone else as Kiki.

“I want to make a disclaimer on the video I posted earlier, I am so sorry, my followers and Kiki Osinbajo, she never got arrested.

“Popular Nigerian blogger, Tunde Ednut just confirmed on Instagram that it is false, Kiki never got arrested. He asked me to take down the story and it is confirmed that the story is false.”

Kiki reportedly flew into Abuja with her father on Tuesday after the VP’s trip to Lagos, where he spoke at the UN World Tourism Organisation global conference.
