Paul Walker’s Daughter Received $10.1M Settlement From Estate of Man Driving During Fatal Crash
The daughter of “The Fast and The Furious” star Paul Walker reached a $10.1-million settlement with the estate of the man driving the car her father died in three years ago, court records show.
The estate of Roger Rodas, a longtime friend of Walker’s who was driving the Porsche Carrera GT the two men died in after a wild 2013 crash, agreed to place more than $7.2 million in a trust for Walker’s teenage daughter, Meadow, according to terms of a settlement that was reached in November 2014.
Nearly $2.9 million was set aside for legal fees, records show.
Walker was on a break from filming the seventh installment in the “Furious” series when he and Rodas decided to drive away from a charity event in Valencia on Nov. 30, 2013. Investigators said the vehicle was traveling at least 90 mph when it smashed into several trees and a concrete light pole on Hercules Street. Both men died within seconds.
