Porsche says Paul Walker ‘was responsible for his own death in the fiery crash of a 2005 Carrera GT’

Published

on

Porsche says that Paul Walker was responsible for his own death in a high-speed crash that took his life on November 30, 2013.

In response to a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Walker’s daughter Meadow, the car company said the actor was ‘a knowledgeable and sophisticated user of the 2005 Carrera GT.’

The company also claimed that the Porsche he was a passenger in had been ‘abused and altered, and was ‘misused and improperly maintained,’ according to TMZ on Monday.

Legal battle: Paul Walker was 40 when he died in a fiery car crash in a Porsche Carrera CGT driven by his friend Roger Rodas in Valencia, California on November 30, 2013. He's pictured in May 2013

The GT was being driven by Walker’s friend Roger Rodas, the owner of an auto racing shop, when it spun out of control on a city street in Valencia, near Los Angeles, and burst into flames after hitting a power pole and several trees.

Walker, who was 40, and Rodas, 38, both died at the scene.

Meadow, 16, filed suit in September alleging the car would never have careened out of control if it had had a proper stabilization system and that Porsche knew the Carrera GT had ‘a history of instability and control issues.’

Later on Monday the teen issued a statement via her representative saying it was ‘regrettable’ that Porsche was ‘blaming the victim.’

The statement, given to TMZ, continued:  ‘Contrary to Porsche’s assertions, the facts are clear: Paul Walker was the passenger in a car that was not designed to protect its occupants.’

Porsche alleges that the Fast & Furious star should not have agreed to go on a high-speed ride in the Carrera GT on city streets and should have been aware of the dangers.

An investigation carried out by law enforcement following the fatal crash determined the Porsche Carrera had been going between 80 and 93 mph when Rodas lost control and concluded that speed was the cause of the crash.

However, according to TMZ, Walker’s daughter claimed in legal documents the car was traveling between 63 and 71 mph.

She also included details of her father’s last moment’s in her lawsuit.

According to the documents, as reported by TMZ, when the Porsche Carrera GT crashed and broke apart, Walker’s seat belt ‘snapped Walker’s torso back with thousands of pounds of force, thereby breaking his ribs and pelvis.’

The suit claimed the fire didn’t break out for one minute and 20 seconds after the impact, but Paul was trapped and still alive when flames engulfed the vehicle.

The suit alleged that the actor ‘breathed soot into his trachea while the Porsche Carrera GT burned.’

The Fast & Furious forgotten family member: What happened to Leon?

Published

on

We’ve learned a lot of things through seven (soon-to-be eight) Fast & Furiousfilms, whether it’s that cars can fly or that Ja Rule cost himself a lot of money.

Yet, the biggest lesson is that there’s nothing more important than family. But what happens when a member of the family disappears and is never heard from again?

“I get asked on a weekly basis by fans of my work and fans of Fast & Furious, ‘What happened to Leon?’” says Johnny Strong. “If you watch the film and you understand the characters, it would be understandable that he would disappear and move on, just as he showed up.”

As the franchise has gone on, Dom’s motley crew has been beefed up, adding players like Roman Pearce (Tyrese), Tej Parker (Ludacris), and Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson). In the beginning, though, there was the original five, consisting of Dom (Vin Diesel), Letty (Michelle Rodriguez), Vince (Matt Schulze), Jesse (Chad Lindberg), and Leon (Strong). Just two of them remain, with Dom and Letty still anchoring the team, as Jesse was killed in The Fast and the Furious, while Vince returned for redemption in Fast Five, only to also die. And Leon, well, no one really knows what happened to him — not even his portrayer.

“As the film progresses, towards the end, there’s a scene where Leon kind of voices his disapproval and he’s shut down by Dom, which showed at this point, Leon is doubting his leader and Dom is losing control over his gang and mission,” theorizes Strong. “After that, Jesse is killed, Letty and Vince almost die, so I think it’s understood that Leon had had enough of that situation. The heat had become too risky and he didn’t want anything more to do with the gang.”

Come on, did you really think Vin was just born with an action star name like Vin Diesel?

The name „Vin“ was taken from his mother’s last name, and „Diesel“ was chosen because Vin’s friends always said he was super energetic.

2. He’s a huge Dungeons & Dragons fan.

He has been playing the famous role-playing game for many years.

According to Vin, one of the game’s cocreators, Gary Gygax, asked him „to tell his life story“ before he passed away in 2008.

 

3. He directed, produced, scored, and acted in his first movie called Multi-Facial in 1999.

IMDb | IMDb

Vin said that big-time director Steven Spielberg saw the short film, and it prompted him to have his team write in a character for Vin in Saving Private Ryan.

 

4. While working on Saving Private Ryan, Tom Hanks became a mentor to Vin.

IMDb | IMDb

„He told me what it was going to be like to be a movie star,“ said Vin. „I’ll always love the wisdom that he gave me very early on in my career.“

5. He publicly supported an anti-body-shaming post by Amy Schumer on Instagram.

In Amy’s post, she talked about being proud of herself despite online trolls.

„You beautiful angel… proud of you for writing this post. Compassion for all, even trolls, is never wrong,“ wrote Vin in a repost.

6. Revolution Studios originally wanted Vin to play Hellboy.

However, director Guillermo del Toro was convinced that Ron Perlman was ideal for the role, and he refused to direct the film if Perlman wasn’t cast.

7. In 2003, Vin was offered the role of Daredevil.

IMDb | IMDb

But Vin turned it down. Later, it was given to Ben Affleck.

A few years earlier, Vin was supposed to act alongside Ben Affleck in Reindeer Games. However, disputes with the screenplay writer and director caused Vin to leave the project.

8. Vin’s father was a theater director and drama professor at Brooklyn College.

„When Paul [Walker] and I won Best Duo for MTV, 12 years after we first won Best Duo at the Movie Awards in 2002, [my dad] was in awe of that,“ remembered Vin.

9. Vin has a fraternal twin brother named Paul.

„It was no accident that this on-screen duo [Brian O’Connor and Dominic Toretto of Fast and Furious) has come to define brotherhood in our millennium,“ said Vin.

Vin and Paloma have been dating since 2007. Together, they have two daughters, Pauline and Hania Riley, and one son, Vincent. All of their children are currently under the age of 10.
