On Nov 30, 2013, “The Fast and the Furious” star Paul Walker was able to survive the impact of the car crash, only to suffer by the fire that erupted the next minute. This is according to a lawsuit filed against car company Porsche by his daughter.
The lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, states that Meadow Walker, 16, is claiming that his father’s Porsche Carrera GT crashed, snapping the actor’s torso backwards “with thousands of pounds of force, thereby breaking his ribs and pelvis.” According to autopsy, the actor died due to trauma and burns.

The flames didn’t erupt after a minute and twenty seconds, with Walker still trapped under his seat belt, his bones broken. The fire engulfed the car, where Paul sat, still alive. According to the lawsuit, “Paul Walker breathed soot into his trachea while the Porsche Carrera GT burned.”
A copy of the wrongful-death lawsuit was also acquired by Deadline. The document was filed by Meadow and her guardian Brandon Birtell. “In her capacity as sole heir and on behalf of the Estate of Paul William Walker IV, Plaintiff is to recover all damage to the Estate proximately caused by the wrongful death of Paul William Walker IV,” the lawsuit states, “including without limitation, all lost income and earnings (present and future), expenses, and all general and special damages to the extent allowed by law.”
The news of the lawsuit comes days after rumors surfaced regarding the possible cancellation of the eighth movie of the “The Fast and the Furious” franchise.
