In November of 2013, actor Paul Walker, most famous for “The Young and the Restless,” and Roger Rodas, were killed in a car accident. The two were driving a Porsche Carrera GT at a speed that is still up for debate. The widow of Roger, Kristine Rodas, is suing Porsche because she has reason to believe that the car was traveling at a reasonable speed of 55mph and the car malfunctioned. Initial reports from crash investigators determined that the car was traveling at least 90mph.
Kristine Rodas specifically has issues with the lack of a proper crash cage and missing safety features in the gas tank. She also blames Porsche for creating a poor suspension system that caused the car to spin out of control. Porsche claims that their investigation has provided them with enough proof to say that the driver was negligent and was driving too fast. They also claimed that the model has no issues with any of its parts.
It seems that Kristine Rodas is off base and is still grieving her husband’s death. It is likely that she won’t win this case as the investigation has already proven that reckless driving had to have been occurring.
