Paul Walker Crash - Wife of Paul Walker's friend Sues Porsche

The death of actor Paul Walker still remains a mystery. The widow of the man behind the wheel of the Porsche Carrera GT that crashed and killed actor Paul Walker last year has sued the automaker on Monday, alleging that faults with the design and suspension led to the fatal crash.

The wrongful death and negligence lawsuit was filed by Kristine Rodas - Roger Rodas’ widow.
The lawsuit against Porsche Cars North America claims the company's 2005 Porsche Carrera GT suffered from design flaws and had a malfunctioning suspension that caused the November crash and both men's deaths.

The lawsuit states - "The Carrera GT was unsafe for its intended use by reason of defects in its manufacture, design, testing, component and constituents, so that it would not safely serve its purpose".

The results of an investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and California Highway Patrol was released in March and concluded that it was unsafe speed and not mechanical problems that caused the crash. That investigation was aided by engineers from Porsche, who evaluated the wreckage of the rare car.

But Kristine Rodas' complaint says her husband was driving the Porsche at 55 mph before the accident.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages from Porsche Cars North America, which did not immediately return email messages seeking comment.
