Paul Walker, was a dazzling actor with a charismatic presence on screen and when he was alive he captured the heart of many through his role in fast and furious movie flick but How Did Paul Walker Die?
Walker and his dear friend, who is known as Roger Rodas attended a charity event organised for the victims of a natural disaster on November 30, 2013. They left the event at 3.27pm in the afternoon, drove in a Porsche GT, that belonged to Roger. Cruising on a speed zone that clearly indicated 45 mph in California, the car crashed and caught fire which resulted in the death of the two men.
Neither men had taken drugs or alcohol before that fateful ride that resulted in their death, the cash was not faulty and the road condition was perfect, so the most probable cause of the ghastly accident was considered to be the speed of the car, and the tire validity.
Incidentally, the movie fast and furious 7, whom Walker was casted in, was filming at the time of his death and had to be called off temporarily. In December 2014, Walker’s father, Paul III, filed a wrongful death claim against Rodas’s estate seeking the return of, or “a proportionate share” of revenue generated by a group of automobiles that were jointly owned by both Walker and Rodas.Porsche’s response denied any wrongdoing and blamed Walker himself, stating: “The perils, risk, and danger were open and obvious and known to him, and he chose to conduct himself in a manner so as to expose himself to such perils, dangers’.
The ruling had no bearing on two other cases against Porsche which have been filed by Walker’s father, who is also the executor of the actor’s estate, and his daughter. Walker’s father and daughter both reached an agreement with Porsche.
