Lawsuit claims Porsche liable for Paul Walker’s death

In the November 25 wrongful death lawsuit filed by attorneys of deceased actor Paul Walker’s father against Porsche, it was claimed that the “Fast and Furious” star could have survived the crash on November 30, 2013, if his 2005 Carrera GT had adequate safety features installed, namely, an “electronic stability control system” like those found in other specialized vehicles. This claim is similar to those listed in a lawsuit filed by the actor’s daughter, Meadow Walker, in which her attorneys alleged that the seatbelt and vehicle sidings likely contributed to the fatal injuries sustained by the actor.

Two Killed in 30 Vehicle Accident

Two people died while seven were injured in a car accident that involved more than 30 vehicles late last month.

The Iowa State Patrol blamed the accident on blowing snow that inhibited motorists’ visibility, resulting in the series of collisions that occurred, as drivers had difficulty seeing vehicles in front of them because of the inclement weather. Heavily ice- and snow-covered roads also added to the dangerous conditions. The area was closed for several hours while troopers removed the vehicles that were affected.

The Iowa State Patrol advised motorists to avoid driving in dangerous weather conditions such as the ones that caused this accident.

Our thoughts are with all the victims of this accident and their families.
