Porsche facing wrongful death lawsuit from father of deceased actor

German automaker Porsche is facing a lawsuit in which the father of deceased actor Paul Walker claimed his son wrongfully died in the fiery Los Angeles car accident in 2013, according to a NBC News report.

According to the November 25 lawsuit filed by the legal counsel of Paul Walker III, the Porsche Carrera GT 2005 occupied by the late actor at the time of his death did not have sufficient “safety features.” The “Fast and Furious” movie actor died when the vehicle he was riding in collided with a lamppost and a tree on November 30, 2013. Professional race driver Roger Rodas, who was driving at the time, also died in the crash. The lawsuit also alleged that the seat belt restraining Walker contributed to his injuries and prevented him from surviving the accident.
