The daughter of the late ‘Fast and Furious’ actor Paul Walker is reportedly set to sue carmaker Porsche, which is part of beleaguered Volkswagen, over the crash in which he died.

Paul Walker was a passenger in a Porsche and a friend was driving when it hit a pole and burst into flames in November 2013, said the Hollywood Reporter.

A wrongful death lawsuit has apparently now been filed by Paul Walker’s daughter Meadow, alleging the carmaker took safety shortcuts.

Porsche has not yet publicly responded to the claims.

After a four-month investigation, police said the Porsche Carrera GT, driven by Paul Walker’s friend Roger Rodas, was travelling at 94mph (151kph) in a 45mph zone when it hit a lamp post.

The alleged lawsuit contends that the car was travelling much slower when it went out of control.

Meadow, who is now 16, has not commented on the reports so far.
