The teenage daughter of Fast & Furious actor Paul Walker has been awarded a $10.1m (£7.15m) settlement from the estate of the man who was behind the wheel of the Porsche in which both men died.

Walker was a passenger in the Porsche Carrera GT driven by his friend Roger Rodas when the vehicle, travelling between 80-93mph, crashed into trees and burst into flames in Santa Clarita, northwest of Los Angeles, in November 2013.

Meadow Walker’s attorney, Jeff Milam, said in a statement that the settlement would go into a trust for the 17-year-old.

“The amount paid by the estate of Roger Rodas into a trust for Meadow Walker only covers a fraction of what her father would have earned as an international movie star had his life not tragically been cut short,” Mr Milam said.

According to Mr Milam’s statement, Mr Rodas was only partially responsible for the crash.

Lawyers for Mr Rodas’ estate could not immediately be reached for comment.
