New Settlement Reached In Paul Walker Crash Lawsuit

Porsche has worked out a deal with the widow of the driver of the car.

Five years after the fatal car crash that killed Paul Walker, the widow of the late driver of the car has reached a settlement with Porsche.

Kristine Rodas, the wife of Roger Rodas, settled her appeal with the carmaker and the case has been dismissed, according to court documents obtained by The Blast.

Roger was driving a Porsche Carrera GT on November 30, 2013, when it skidded off the road and hit a tree, killing both Roger and Paul.

Kristine sued Porsche soon after but lost. However, upon filing an appeal, claiming that faulty mechanics caused the crash, she settled with the car company.

Paul’s daughter Meadow also filed a lawsuit against Porsche and settled her case last year. She also settled with the driver’s estate for $10.1 million.
