Five months after Paul Walker and his friend, Roger Rodas, lost their lives in a car accident, Roger's widow, Kristine Rodas, has sued Porsche — the maker of the Porsche Carrera GT he was driving at the time of the crash.
In the court filing, Kristine alleges the vehicle was poorly designed and had tons of flaws. She believes this led to the accident that claimed the lives of her husband and the 40-year-old actor in Santa Clarita, Calif., last November.

"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," Roger's family alleges in the lawsuit.
It also contradicts a Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's report that found the sports car was going between 80 and 93 mph when it made impact.

Kristine claims the car was only going 55 mph at the time of the crash.
Roger, who was a veteran race car driver, lost control of the car causing it to swipe a tree, hit a light pole and a second tree. It then hit a third tree on the passenger side, which caused the vehicle to erupt in flames.
Kristine's attorney, Mark Geragos, states the car's suspension system forced Roger to lose control.
